Happy Feet are Healthy Feet: Common Sense Tips on Taking Care of Your Feet to Survive the Holiday Season
Date:12/11/2009

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- If you have a foot or ankle problem, you are not feeling the pain alone. Four out of every five Americans suffer some sort of foot problem. These problems can eventually cause pain throughout the skeletal structure, and manifest themselves as pain in the knee, hip or back.

How your feet feel can be a reflection of your general health. If they hurt, they may be signaling more serious conditions. They may be your first indication of serious medical problems such as: Arthritis, Diabetes, and Nerve & Circulatory Disorders.

Dr. Keren of the Happy Feet Clinic in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, offers practical tips for the holiday season, so you can keep your feet healthy and avoid unnecessary stress and complications.

Moisturize, stretch and message your feet. This will release tension, increase circulation and rejuvenate the skin after a long day on your feet.
  2. Wear Smart Shoes - No high heels! (Or flip-flops, or sandals...) If you know you will be on your feet all day, wear comfortable shoes with arch support and a padded sole.
  3. Point Your Toes. Avoid toe cramping by raising, pointing and curling your toes for five seconds each and repeat 10 times. You won't even break a sweat!
  4. Elevate Your Legs. Reduce swelling by lying down and lifting legs above your heart.
  5. Rotate Your Ankles. Relax your feet by rotating your ankles, cupping your heel and turning each ankle slowly. This loosens the ankle joints.
  6. Socks are Important. If you go bare, your foot may slide, causing blisters. Wear a thin cotton sock, which will absorb sweat. Avoid nylon-it causes excessive sweating.
  7. If you got gout, watch what you eat and drink. Avoid go
