admin Uncategorized Leave a comment   , , ,

 

Autumn is upon us, and this means walks through leaf-strewn paths, river valley bike rides, and generally getting in as much outdoor time as we can before the the impending winter.  Foot discomfort preventing you from doing so?  Come and see us at our Edmonton foot clinic, and let us help you get back into walking shape! Need to see an podiatrist in central Edmonton?  Look no further than the Strathcona Foot and Ankle Clinic, where Dr. Kruszelnicki and Dr. Prosen are ready to care for you.  Happy Thanksgiving to all!


How To Care For Your Foot Post-Injury

Caring For Your Feet

If you injure your foot exercising, wearing the wrong shoes or generally increasing your activity level, “no pain, no gain” is usually not the answer. Here are a few tips that will get you back on your feet, both literally and figuratively speaking!

  1. Home care should consist of rest, ice, elevation, potential wrapping and anti-inflammatory medication if necessary
  2. Inspect your shoes to make sure they fit properly and there is adequate room for your toes to wiggle around in the toe box of the shoe.
  3. An arch support/insole may also help to alleviate your pain, and soft insole liners can also be placed in your shoes for some comfort/cushioning.
  4. If all else fails, call your local podiatrist 🙂
