Foot Care Remedies Proper foot care for an individual comprises all activities involving attention and care given to the foot and ankle which may be either prevention of certain condition or harm or corrective measures to wounded feet. While standing and walking, the feet are usually the major organs which provide support to the full body weight of an individual hence taking care of the feet is very crucial. Shoes that do not fit properly and are poorly designed for the feet can be quite uncomfortable and this is a major cause of foot problems. When shopping for well-fitting and comfortable shoes, it is always advisable to shop in the afternoon since as the day goes by, the feet tend to swell hence if a shoe fits at that time than it is good. When the joint at the base of the big toes are out of line with the others and become swollen and tender, bunions develop. Inheritance isn’t a major cause of bunions but wearing ill-fitting shoes which have a raised heel and are narrow at the toes. A band of tissues running underneath the sole of the foot can thicken because of improper foot wear causing a condition referred to as plantar fasciitis which is very painful. Wearing of high-heeled shoes and then abruptly changing to flat shoes or wearing shoes with very thin soles and weak arch support may bring plantar fasciitis although it can also be brought about by being overweight, standing for long hours and taking a new form of exercise or increasing the intensity of one’s exercise. Proper-fitting shoes help prevent the formation of corns and calluses because of reduced friction in the feet. There are different varieties of bunion correctors including toe separators which are placed between the big toe and one next to it to help in proper arrangement of the big toe. Another bunion corrector which helps in decreasing friction which reduces bunion pain, realigns the big toe and decreases the tension of feet ligaments is the bunion sleeves. Planar fasciitis support using heel cushion and pads, wearing arch and foot supports as well as stretching the foot to ease tension are major ways of correcting planar fasciitis. Bacterial and fungal infection of the foot including athlete foot which is due to wearing shoes that do not allow air circulation hence are damp and warm is another common foot problem. Athlete foot can be avoided by enhancing air circulation in the feet and ensuring that the areas between the toes are always clean and dry. Persistent fungicidal infection is controlled by dusting the feet using fungicidal dust. Petroleum jelly or lanolin containing moisturizers offer sufficient care to the feet when applied. Ensuring proper circulation of blood in the feet prevents problems by reducing long periods of sitting and smoking to ensure proper feet care.Discovering The Truth About Wellness
