Winter Foot Care

As summer ends and temperatures drop, those of us who wish to remain active outdoors need to take several things into consideration. For starters we need to:

  • Wear shoes with good grip, integrity, & support
  • Account for thicker-warmer socks when picking a shoe
  • Warm up & stretch adequately before exercise

During the colder months diabetic foot care becomes more important as well. Some of the processes diabetics should keep to are:

  • Maintaining warm & dry feet is of utmost importance
  • Maintaining control over blood sugar levels
  • Keeping nails trimmed straight across

If you would like more information on winter foot care and shoe wear the podiatrists at Advanced Foot & Ankle are here to help! Schedule an appointment at any of our 4 locations. Read the full Winter Foot Care article.

End of Year Insurance Reminder

The end of the year is fast approaching. With changes to insurance, health savings accounts expiring, etc., now is a good time to get little issues you’ve been putting off checked out.

Talk to one of the doctors about bunion removal, ingrown toenails, and whatever else might be bothering you. Take advantage of the benefits you have before the end of the year!
