  • Protect. Protect your feet with comfortable socks that reduce rubbing and irritation between the toes and on heels such as Crescent Inc.'s "World's Softest Sock" Sensitive Feet Collection. The socks densely cushioned, acrylic footbeds also help to keep feet dry and comfortable, inhibiting blisters and hot spots.
  • Exercise. Point and squeeze toe muscles to stave off foot cramps and swelling.
  • Watch heel height. If you're planning a romantic night out on the town, wear high heels that are less than two inches in height. Bring a pair of walking shoes if you plan to travel by foot to and from your destination to decrease the risk of injury.

    Founded in 1912, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) is the nation's leading and recognized professional organization for doctors of podiatric medicine (DPMs). DPMs are podiatric physicians and surgeons, also known as podiatrists, qualified by their education, training and experience to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the foot, ankle and structures of the leg. The medical education and training of a DPM includes four years of undergraduate education, four years of graduate education at an accredited podiatric medical college and two or three years of hospital residency training. APMA has 53 state component locations across the United States and its territories, with a membership of close to 12,000 podiatrists. All practicing APMA members are licensed by the state in which they practice podiatric medicine. For more information, visit
