too many people suffer from foot and ankle pain unnecessarily.

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to splurge and show some extra love and attention to those special people in your life. According to cnn.com there will be around $1.6 billion spent on candy and approximately 151 million cards exchanged on this special day. Since your feet won’t appreciate cards or chocolate, how are you going to show them some love?

That may sound like a strange question, but while your mind is on the topic of love, why not love your feet and give them the extra attention they deserve? Let’s face it, our feet are usually ignored and neglected, and sometimes the result is pain or injury. These tips will help bring life back to your tired feet, and include great ways to pamper them after a long day at work or with your girlfriends over Valentine’s Day.

First, let your feet soak for 10-20 minutes in warm foot bath with some Epsom salts or peppermint oil, which soothe feet and increase circulation. Try a homemade exfoliant of ¼ cup of honey, ¼ cup of raw sugar and two tablespoons of grape seed oil—use with a pumice stone to smooth away rough skin and calluses. With the mixture still on, wrap your feet in a warm, moist towel and wait 15 minutes before rinsing off. Rinse and towel dry your feet and then apply a nice moisturizer with peppermint before putting socks on for the night. This whole routine can be done often and your feet will love you back!

We are expert at caring for feet and are available if you have any questions or concerns about your foot health. Don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Phil Pinsker for an appointment. Call our Washington, PA podiatric office at (724) 225-7410 today.

February is typically the time for people to declare their love for another but what about a New Year’s resolution to love your feet? It is time to make a declaration of love for your feet and here’s why!

Dr. Pinsker, foot specialist in Washington, PA is often reminded through his patients that feet tend to be neglected until a problem arises. The truth is that some basic care and attention to those two little body partscan make a big difference! They are the foundation of your body, allowing you to get everywhere you need to be and do everything you want to do. This new year may be time to turn over a new “foot” and take care of them a little better.

Feet that are clean and healthy will ultimately be happy feet. Just standing in the shower may not do the trick in getting rid of the dirt and bacteria trapped by socks and shoes. Dr. Pinsker encourages all his patients to spend a few extra minutes to scrub feet and toenails. Dry feet completely, especially between toes to help prevent athlete’s foot.

Wear comfortable shoes and clean socks every day. It sounds simple but the injuries and infections that can result with those who don’t can be pretty serious. At our podiatric office, we treat too many patients who have ignored rashes or small injuries in the hopes that they will go away on their own. This is often not the case and you can truly show love to your feet by having even the small problems properly taken care of.

If you need help loving on your feet, we would be happy to help! We can provide footwear advice, orthotics for many different conditions and treatment for any foot or ankle problems. Call our office today at (724) 225-7410 or visit us at www.washingtonfootdoc.com.
