Summer Feet

SUMMER is here and it may present quite a challenge to keep your feet cool when walking around in extremely hot weather. Therefore, your feet need some special care and attention during the summer months. Heat and humidity will aid in the growth of bacteria, so taking measures to reduce these will help enormously.  The most important thing is to take the proper precautions such as keeping your feet clean by washing your feet daily and drying them thoroughly before putting on footwear.  Foot injuries are also more prevalent – the increased level of outdoor athletic activities during the summer increases the chance of either muscle pain, heel pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, etc.  Consider custom orthotics or inserts with proper arch support in order to help alleviate foot pain or avoid injury.  Come visit us at Houston Foot and Ankle Care!
