Taking Care of Your Feet and Where to Find a Podiatrist in Ballina

Given how many steps most people take by the time they reach 50 or 60, it’s no wonder that our feet are tired and need a little extra TLC. It’s important to visit a podiatrist in Ballina regularly to ensure that your feet are in top shape – but there are some things you can do on your own to look after them between check-ups.

  • Give your feet a soak. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil or a little Epsom salt to a tub of warm water and soak your feet for 10 to 15 minutes. Be sure to dry them gently, paying special attention to the areas between your toes.
  • Pamper your nails. Keep your toenails trimmed straight across so that the tips are even with the tips of your toes. Nails are easiest to trim right after a foot soak. If you have diabetes, leave this step to a podiatrist in Ballina.
  • Take care of your skin. The skin on your feet naturally becomes drier and thinner as you age. After taking a bath or shower, massage your feet with your favourite moisturiser, but don’t leave it between your toes as this may increase your risk of developing a fungal infection.
  • Wear the right shoes. Years of high heels and shoes that crowd your toes can lead to painful issues such as corns and bunions. Make sure your shoes fit correctly and feel good; avoid shoes that are too snug, as your feet may swell throughout the day.

If you experience any pain or worrisome symptoms in your feet or toes, don’t ignore it. At Optimum Allied Health, we can provide a podiatrist in Ballina to assess and treat a wide range of foot issues, developing and managing personalised treatment plans and always providing our services with a smile.
