What Can Cause Foot Problems
- Poorly fitting shoes, slippers or boots.
- Shoes with high narrow heels, slippery soles, "sticky" soles or poor support.
- Some conditions, such as diabetes and poor circulation, can cause loss of feeling in your feet.
- Poor posture.
- Untreated foot problems like calluses, bunions, corns, untrimmed toenails, or ingrown toenails.
- Swollen feet.
What you can do
- Wear proper fitting supportive shoes with low broad heels.
- Make sure your footwear is in good repair.
- Talk with a foot specialist about calluses, bunions, corns, or ingrown toenails. Corn plasters are not recommended for people with diabetes, heart or blood vessel disease.
- If your shoes are loose and you can't afford a new pair, buy insoles or wear extra socks.
- DO NOT wear socks on linoleum or tiled flooring.
- Buy slippers that fit properly and are enclosed around the heels.
- Wear loose socks or stockings. Knee highs can cut off your circulation in your legs and numb your feet.
- If your feet are swollen, put them up when sitting or lying down.
- See a professional foot-care specialist every 4-5 weeks for toenail cutting if you can't do it yourself.
