Did you know ill-fitted, hard sole shoes keep your podiatrist melbourne in business? Well brace yourself for some of the finest – mind boggling Tea that the Podiatrist won’t spill. God Bless the Internet!
Get your feet measured before buying shoes:
A lot of the times people tend to forget that their feet grow with age. This leads to, you buying the wrong size, although it might fit you perfectly well, chances are that it’s going to be tighter around the edges. This causes excessive pressure over a period of time and can possibly lead to painful calluses or rashes due to abrasion.
Infections caused from your constant visits to the nearby Nail salon keeps your podiatry clinic in melbourne in Business:
Yes! No matter how much your pedicurist tells you that they clean their basins and tools. There’s always a possibility of you getting a fungal or bacterial infection. Yes they definitely sanitize their basins in between customers but there’s always a chance that some fungus and bacteria stays in the vents and drainage pipes.
Pro-Tip: Be the first customer!
Use Toe Separators:
Your sandringham podiatrist might not tell you this but if you want to visit him less often, wear toe separators. They keep everything in place!
Your feet should never smell – Please!
Please, please, please use an anti-perspirant. You can buy an over the counter spray deodorant for your feet. Other than that habitually change your shoes and let them dry up before use, in order to avoid smelly feet.
Shorten toes and Injections:
This is probably something that might interest those who love wearing heels. You can ask your podiatrist to shorten your finger toes or get related injection for you to wear those stilettos with grace and pain-free! Yes – go ask him!
Buy running shoes from a Specialty store:
Always buy running shoes from a specialty store because they have meticulously designed for the sole reason of running!
Never shave before treating yourself with a Pedicure:
Absolutely not! Don’t be ashamed of that body hair and never shave before a pedicure because the chances of bacteria and fungus entering your body, increases considerably.
Take care of your feet:
Please – always! Don’t run in things you shouldn’t be running in, keep them clean and smooth. Use creams and moisturizers for dead skin and always shop for comfortable shoes. Also never mown your lawn in sandals, that’s some real risky business!
Don’t wear sandals – Flip-flops everywhere!
We all love flip-flops but did you know they were only designed to be worn on sand or grass? If you have been wearing them everywhere, including the rock hard exteriors of the city than chances are you might have to visit your podiatrist real soon!
Stop using over the counter Anti-fungal cures:
Amen! Although they might help you for the time being, you will naturally have to visit your podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and cure. Always consider taking a prescribed medicine over any OTC products.
Well the tea has been spilt – take care of those feet, nourish them, moisturize them and above all do not run bare foot!
