Why is looking after your feet important?

Your feet are constantly absorbing impact and withstanding weight throughout the day. It’s important that you ensure that you are giving them the TLC that they need and deserve. 

Foot care is important for everyone, but for those with diabetes it is particularly important. Poor foot health may lead to more serious complications in diabetics and other systemic conditions which affect the circulation and sensation. At Dunmurry Podiatry, we assess for poor circulation and neuropathy using Doppler and sensation tests as part of routine and diabetic assessments.

Maintaining adequate foot health will help to avoid health complications from occuring in the future – strong feet stand by you, quite literally. There are many reasons why you should keep your feet in good condition, but some of the main ones include: 

  • Avoiding issues such as ingrown toenails or fungal infections.
  • Improving and maintaining balance and coordination.
  • Maintaining a healthy and enjoyable quality of life.
  • Ensuring optimal mobility.
  • Allowing for physical activity and exercise.
  • Preventing foot pain from occurring.
  • Preventing biomechanical pain from occurring in the hips, knees and in other parts of the lower body. 
  • Maintains their appearance.
  • Ensures feet are free from dead skin, preventing dry and cracked heels. 
  • Helps to prevent blisters, corns and calluses from forming. 

Keeping your feet in good condition is a good practice to get into and maintain. It is too easy to neglect your feet until something happens such as an injury or infection. Paying regular attention to your feet will ensure that they are healthy everyday, and able to withstand all of the things that you put them through. 

We offer treatments for the following

  • Athlete’s foot
  • Bunions
  • Callus
  • Corns
  • Flat Feet
  • Foot Arthritis
  • Fungal Nails
  • Hammer Toes
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Sever’s Disease
  • Thick Toenails

  • Skin conditions

Tips for looking after your feet

Good foot care starts at the home, and whilst we provide in depth advice and support regarding foot health, there are some things that you can do to maintain them in the meantime: 

  • Keep your feet clean and dry.
  • Regularly change socks and footwear.
  • Try to let your feet breath, keeping them free from long periods of moisture or sweat. 
  • Apply moisturiser to dry parts of the feet. 
  • Check them regularly for signs of infection or ingrown toenails. 
  • Correctly cut toenails in a straight line. 
  • File away at dead skin using a pumice stone or foot file.
  • Wear appropriate footwear – try to avoid wearing heels, or shoes with a lack of support, such as sandals, crocs or slippers.
  • Wear footwear that correctly fits the size of your feet. 
  • Try to avoid wearing tights, stockings or socks that are tightly fitted, as this decreases circulation.

Following these tips will help you set out a good routine for maintaining proper foot health, it will also help you quickly identify any areas for concern, so that you can get them seen before they escalate into more serious issues.
