Posted on: December 18, 2017 by Healthy Lives No Comments


Your feet are your foundation, so making comfort a priority could help support your goal to move more! Use these tips to keep them healthy so you don’t get sidelined by a pain in the foot.

  • GET COMFY:
    As much as possible, wear supportive, comfortable shoes that fit well.
  • KNOW YOUR FEET:
    Keep an eye out for blisters, cuts, sores, swelling and tenderness.
  • TAKE A STAND: 
    Alternate periods of sitting, standing and moving throughout the day.
  • LIGHTEN UP:
    Maintain a healthy weight to stay light on your feet, knees and body.
  • CROSS TRAIN:
    Mix in different activities to avoid repetitive impact – take a chance on something fun!
  • BEFORE AND AFTER:
    Include your feet, ankles, calves and knees in your warm up and cool down routines.
  • GET SUPPORT:
    Try orthotics or shoe inserts for additional support, comfort and pain relief from common foot, back and knee issues.
