Common Foot Injuries

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common foot conditions that people deal with. It often occurs as a result of intense training or overuse, but you can also develop it from wearing improper footwear. Another common foot problem is Achilles tendonitis, which is the result of inflammation in the Achilles tendon. People with this condition have swelling in the band of tissue, which can cause a lot of pain. It is often caused by tight calf muscles, which put strain on the Achilles tendon. In order to treat it you should get a lot of rest, apply ice to the area, and stretch.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact Dr. Harris L. Klear from Burlington County Podiatry Associates. 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Marlton and Delran, NJ. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
