How to Treat Your Feet Right

     Feet are a crucial part of human anatomy and most people take them for granted. They are just there, putting up with a host of challenges. They are jammed into high heels and elevated to unnatural heights. They are also smothered inside of sweaty socks and tight pantyhose all day. While suffering these indignities, our feet take hundreds of tons of force impacted on them just during an average day of walking. That pounding explains why the human foot is the body part most likely to get injured.
     Here are some tips that will help you to maintain healthy feet:  You should be extremely cautious about having a pedicure in a salon. The cleanliness of tubs and instruments that are used on your feet are vital. It is especially important if you have diabetes, fungus, corns, toenail discoloration, etc. Talk with a specialist before getting a regular pedicure. A medical pedicure is the preferred treatment for cleanliness and safe foot care. Your feet should not hurt---EVER. Tight shoes can worsen bunions, distort toe shape and cause painful foot growths. If you wear high heels, make sure to choose heels that are wide, stable and no higher than two inches. Toe boxes should be wide and pointed toes should begin their narrowing shape until well past the ball of the foot. To protect your Achilles tendon from shortening, you should alternate heel heights regularly. 
Women: pregnancy, aging and diabetes, affect your feet. 
     Pregnant women need shoes with broad heels, arch support and good shock absorbency. Added pregnancy weight may cause your shoe size to change, so it is important to get your feet measured. 
      Older women lose some of the cushioning fat on the balls of their feet. Choose shoes that provide more shock protection. Diabetics can develop serious conditions related to the feet and lower legs. Check feet for any problems daily and get a medical pedicure at least three times a year.
