Special Socks for Arthritic Feet

If you have arthritis that affects your feet, wearing certain types of socks may help you manage your symptoms. Compression socks, which apply consistent pressure to the feet, can help reduce joint swelling and pain. Padded socks provide an extra layer of cushioning between your feet and your shoes or the floor and may make standing or walking more comfortable, in addition to helping prevent cuts and bruises on your feet. Heated socks can warm your joints and reduce the impact that the cold or living in a cold climate may have on your arthritis. To learn more about socks that can help you manage your arthritis, please consult with a podiatrist. 

Arthritis can be a difficult condition to live with. If you are seeking treatment, contact Dr. Nicholas Przystawski from Central Florida Foot Care, PA. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Arthritic Foot Care  

Arthritis is a joint disorder that involves the inflammation of different joints in your body, such as those in your feet. Arthritis is often caused by a degenerative joint disease and causes mild to severe pain in all affected areas. In addition to this, swelling and stiffness in the affected joints can also be a common symptom of arthritis.

In many cases, wearing ill-fitting shoes can worsen the effects and pain of arthritis. Wearing shoes that have a lower heel and extra room can help your feet feel more comfortable. In cases of rheumatoid arthritis, the arch in your foot may become problematic. Buying shoes with proper arch support that contour to your feet can help immensely.

Alleviating Arthritic Pain

  • Exercises that stretch the foot can prevent further pain and injury and increase mobility
  • Most of the pain can be alleviated with anti-inflammatory drugs, heat, and topical medications
  • Massages can help temporarily alleviate pain.

It is best to see your doctor for the treatment that is right for your needs and symptoms. Conditions vary, and a podiatrist can help you determine the right method of care for your feet.

Four Tips for Healthy Feet

Your feet carry you throughout your life, supporting the weight of your body. Maintaining the health of your feet is essential and there are many simple ways to keep the feet healthy. Check your feet regularly for any abnormalities, such as cracks, cuts, scrapes, sores, or discoloration. If caught early, most foot problems can be promptly and effectively treated by a podiatrist. Visually checking your feet is especially important if you have medical conditions like diabetes, poor circulation, or peripheral neuropathy, as you may not feel or notice an injury until it has progressed significantly. Keep your feet clean by washing them with soap and water and drying them thoroughly, especially in the area between the toes. Wear shoes that fit comfortably and trim your toenails regularly. For more information about everyday foot care, please speak with a podiatrist.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Nicholas Przystawski from Central Florida Foot Care, PA. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
