The New Year’s Resolution You’re Forgetting About
The New Year is upon us, which means you’re making New Year’s resolutions that you plan to keep. While many people are resolving to lose weight, visit new places or take advantage of new opportunities, if you don’t also resolve to take better care of your feet—you may not be headed in the right direction.
“Your feet are the foundation of a healthy body and mind,” say the podiatrists at Triad Foot Center. “If your feet are in pain, you’re not likely to take that bucket list trip or make it to your workout session. Instead, you’ll be hoping that the pain will subside enough to even think about the resolutions you made for yourself.”
If you want to the new year on the right foot, here are some resolutions for your piggies so they don’t make you cry all the way home.
- Have a toenail fungus infection? Winter is the best time to treat them because, by spring, you’ll be ready to rock your favorite open-toed shoes.
- Painful bunion that you’ve been putting off treatment for? Bunions can cause a lot of discomfort and pain, which is why you should finally think about getting it treated. Failing to treat a bunion can force your second toe out of alignment and possibly cause it to overlap your third toe. Severe bunions can also make walking difficult and wearing shoes an agonizing experience.
- Stop that stabbing heel pain! Plantar fasciitis starts as a dull ache in the heel but progresses to a sharp stabbing pain or a constant throb. In as little as 15 minutes you can be pain-free with Triad Foot’s in-office EPAT treatment.
- Invest in foot-friendly shoes: Swapping your sky-high heels for something a little more practical that promotes proper foot health will prevent any future and painful foot complications.
- Finally get those custom orthotics you know you need but keep putting off. Your feet—and the rest of your body—will thank you.
- Finally, flatten that hammertoe out! It’s time to finally take your feet out of hiding and embrace open-toed shoes! Make 2019 the year that you finally feel confident about your feet and get your hammertoe corrected.
