Inspect your feet daily especially in-between the toes and if mobility and poor vision makes it difficult, have someone else do it. Remember any injury to the foot or break in the skin is potentially serious.Notify your physician or Chiropodist if you notice:Cuts or scrapesCorns and callusesPuncture woundsDiscoloration, pain, redness or swellingIngrown toe nailsPain in calf area during walking or exercisingIf your foot health seems less than optimal, there are some simple steps you can take to make improvements:Regularly trim your toe nails. Cut them straight across and file any sharp corners with an emery board rather than cutting the corners off. Cutting them can cause painful ingrown toe nails. If your nails are thick, brittle, discoloured, or ingrown, see your doctor or chiropodist for treatment.Moisturize your skin regularly with a deep-penetrating lotion or cream. Use a pumice stone to remove dry patches and callouses. Make sure your shoes are not rubbing or irritating your skin.Give yourself a foot massage to relieve tired, achy foot muscles, joints, and tendons. Relaxed feet are less prone to strains, pulled muscles and tendons, and general tiredness. Also, make sure your shoes fit properly and provide enough support and cushioning. Replace damaged shoes and consider orthodics. If you have frequent aches and pains in your feet, bunions, persistent infections, or any other concerns, your chiropodist can help.Available TreatmentFREMS is a biophysical Treatment dedicated to NEUROVASCULAR REAHABILITATION of leg complications and chronic wounds.
