May is Foot Health Month! The purpose of Foot Health Month is to raise awareness to the public about the importance of your feet and how to care for them properly. Feet are an important part of your body and if your feet are sore and in a lot of pain, this can affect your day-to-day activities.
By visiting a Chiropodist at Ontario Foot and Orthotics, one can learn the benefits of proper foot care and the various diseases and disorders that can affect the feet. Diabetes is one condition that can affect the feet in many ways. There are complications that can arise from diabetes that can lead to loss of sensation causing wounds, infections, and possibly amputation. By seeing your foot specialist on a regular basis, these complications can be prevented and if caught early, can be treated accordingly.
Conditions that can be treated by our foot specialists include corns, calluses, routine foot care, ingrown toe nails, diabetic foot care and wound care, warts, sports injuries, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, and much more. Chiropodists at Ontario Foot and Orthotics can also assess and prescribe custom made orthotics and orthopaedic shoes.
Visit us this month for a foot assessment and learn how to care for your feet. Learning about your feet and how to keep them healthy is very important and always remember that happy feet are healthy feet!
