Be Sure Treat Your Feet With Love

It's Valentine's Day...a day for love!  We reach out to our wives and husbands, boyfriends and girlfriends, and express our love to them.  Great for the flower and chocolate industry!!

It's also a great idea to shift the focus to loving ourselves.  Too often, in our pursuit of caring for those that we love the most, we start neglecting our own health and well being.  This goes for every aspect of our health, but foot health is something that usually is a low priority in particular.

In my Houston, TX podiatry practice, I see people everyday who can't take their foot pain anymore.  When I ask them how long they have had it, the answer is commonly "months" and even "years."  This is unacceptable.  We've all heard that if your feet hurt, you hurt all over, then how can we function with pain in our base of support.  It exhausts us to be in pain and affects our work life, recreation, and even our love life.  Waking up with a sharp, stabbing pain in the heel, and then managing your entire day with it takes too much out of you for one day, never mind more than that!

The good news is that your podiatrist can usually quickly and easily manage the pain you are in.  In most cases we are able to provide relief almost immediately!  Don't suffer with your foot pain.  Your feet are responsible for too much of your enjoyment and productivity!  Love each other, but don't forget to love yourself too!

Happy Valentines Day!
