Foot pain is on the rise, according to a recent American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) survey.  42% said their feet hurt occasionally and 6% said that they hurt all the time.  And 41% of respondents believed that it was normal for their feet to hurt sometimes.  Foot pain is not something you have to live with. In fact, many foot problems are preventable and almost all are completely treatable.  

Foot pain can have many causes.  It can be the result of the shoes you wear, where you work, how you walk, your exercise routine, foot deformities, and even undetected diabetes, poor circulation, or arthritis.  

An estimated 75% of Americans will experience foot problems during their lifetime and only 16% will see a Podiatrist.  The fact is that we are a more active society and we are on our feet more than ever before and should not be surprised by these statistics. 

Although a physically active lifestyle is an important part of keeping YOU healthy,  don’t neglect the minor aches and pains that could sideline you for the long haul.  Your Podiatrist can identify problems or make suggestions to keep you moving and prevent injury.  Enlist the help of your Podiatrist to help keep you moving pain-free. 

October is Breast Cancer awareness month.  So what does this have to do with feet???    Well…..most of you reading this probably have a pair of feet….and...fall into at least one of two groups of people.  You either have breasts or your loved ones have them.   And no matter which group you fall into, you need to help ensure that your or your loved ones regularly perform self-examinations and go for yearly mammograms.  By doing your part for Breast Cancer awareness month, you are helping to protect the feet of the people you love!
