Happy New Year, 2012!

Welcome to a new year. With a new year comes new years resolutions, most commonly exercise and weight loss. Many times beginning an exercise program also starts the development of a wide variety of foot problems. Remember, foot pain is not normal. If you develop foot pain after starting a new exercise program, contact our office for an evaluation. We’ll help you meet your new years exercise and weight loss goals and eliminate your foot pain.


Diabetes, Medicare and Your Feet

Poorly fitting shoes are the primary reason people with diabetes are at an increased risk for skin breakdown, foot ulceration and/or infection. Complications related to diabetes can result in amputation of the foot or leg. Patients with diabetes may be eligible for diabetic specific shoes through the Medicare Therapeutic Shoe Program. These stylish name brand shoes give you and your feet maximum comfort, protection and mobility with little or no out-of pocket cost to you. Many private insurance companies will also cover diabetic shoes. To see if you or a family member qualifies for diabetic shoes, feel free to ask any of our staff members. If you qualify, your feet will be measured and shoes selected that are appropriate for your feet and to your liking. To view some of the shoes available, visit

Winter Foot Care

One of the most common winter foot complaints is dry skin. This usually occurs from the dry environment we live in during the winter months. Following these simple steps will help keep your feet smooth and ready for sandal season in the spring. Avoid soaking feet on a regular basis. Use warm, not hot, water when showering and a mild fragrance-free soap. Use dry skin cream right after showering to lock in moisture. Apply the cream twice a day. Use brand name creams such as AmLactin 12% or Curel UltraHealing. Prescription strength creams are also available in our office if the over-the-counter creams are ineffective. Contact the office if any split skin, drainage or bleeding is noted.
