Good foot health really matters. It can reduce pain; improve confidence, mobility, quality of life and independence with the potential to prevent more serious health problems. Healthy feet allow you to remain physically active, which in turn improves emotional health and vitality. Your health rests on them.
The Foundation Of The Body
Your feet are your body's structural foundation, and any problem with your feet will eventually affect your entire body. ... The seven thousand plus nerve endings in your feet send messages to your brain, and if they are not functioning at an optimal level, your brain will begin to overcompensate.
Irritation of inter-digital nerves (in the balls of the feet) may cause enlargement of the nerves, causing pain in the balls of the feet.
Look after your feet!
Some common conditions I can help with are:
As we get older our skin gets drier. The dry skin on our feet, particularly the heels, can crack and become quite uncomfortable; it also becomes more susceptible to inflammation and infections. The solution to this problem lies in Epsom salt and then in moisturising creams. There is no need to spend a fortune - an inexpensive one will do the trick quite nicely. The only potential problem would be an allergy to the products you are using, so you might want to read labels carefully before you buy anything.
There are various ways of dealing with disappearing fat pads. One approach is to relieve the area of stress. Often, shoe inserts - such as Happy Feet insoles, these insoles can be purchased online or from Boyd Group, Dumfries - will provide some relief and eliminate the need for more aggressive action, such as custom-made orthotics.
Pay closer attention to your feet so that you can avoid or at least alleviate some of the conditions I have described. If you are unable to care for your feet yourself, have them examined and cared for periodically. Treat yourself to a foot massage once in a while - and that goes for men as well! If you take good care of your feet, they will help keep you active and happy for a long time.
