Foot Health Education
Foot Health Education - Conditions & Treatments
Educating our patients is a #1 priority here at Foot Specialists of Birmingham. By people understanding what is going on with their bodies they are able to help doctors properly diagnose and treat them.
Your foot health can be a clue to your overall health. For example, joint stiffness could mean arthritis. Tingling or numbness could be a sign of diabetes. Swelling might indicate kidney disease, heart disease or high blood pressure.
To keep your feet healthy:
- Examine your feet regularly
- Wear comfortable shoes that fit
- Wash your feet daily with soap and lukewarm water
- Trim your toenails straight across and not too short
