Avoid walking barefoot. Many of us enjoy being barefoot during the summer. There is nothing quite like the feeling of sand between your toes, or grass beneath your feet, but being barefoot increases your chances of wounds and infections. If a wound is not treated properly infections can spread and cause limb loss, or permanent damage to nerves, muscles, tendons, or bones. This is why, if you are experiencing any discomfort or abnormal pain contact a medical professional. To help prevent such wounds or injuries from occurring, we recommend wearing closed toe shoes and cleaning your feet after being outside.

Another tip for this Fourth of July, be careful while handling fireworks. Thousands of burns occur every Fourth of July due to fireworks. These burns usually occur on our extremities such as our hands, legs, and feet. A severe burn can cause trauma and damage to the affected area and needs immediate care. A burn of a high degree could lead to permanent damage and should be treated accordingly.


No matter how you celebrate the 4th this year, please be safe!

It’s that time of year to “Spring” out of our winter shoes and socks.




Here are a few tips to get our feet into shape.

  •  For your heels remove that thick skin and painful cracks by using a pumice stone or a foot file to exfoliate your heels.  Try before your shower when heels are dry or after a bath or shower.   Find out which way works best for you!
  •   Moisturize your feet daily making sure to rub it in completely.  
  • Change your nail polish.  Leaving the same nail polish on for months is not healthy for your nails.  Let nails breathe as much as possible.
