April is Foot Health Month

Your feet are the most working part of your body. It is estimated that the average person walks about 115,000 miles in their lifetime – enough to walk around the world 4 right-foottimes. The human foot is an amazing and complex structure. The foot contains 26 bones (about 1/4 of all the bones in the body). Your feet support your body and help maintain balance. Walking is the best exercise for your legs as well as your feet and provides the lowest impact on your joints and bones. Walking provides the exercise needed to maintain your weight, and reduce the risk of diabetes for non-insulin dependent individuals. Walking also helps in maintaining your mental well being. While walking, you can assist your venous circulatory system by wearing your support socks or support stockings. We have many fine socks available to assist you at Support Hose Plus.

To Keep Your Feet Happy:

  • Check your feet regularly for sores, cuts, or bruises
  • Wash your feet regularly and be sure to dry them completely
  • Keep your toenails trimmed regularly and straight across, but not too short
  • Always wear your support stockings every day to assist your venous system and protect your feet

Your physician is your best source of information.
Please talk to your physician about any symptoms or problems you are experiencing with your legs or feet.

Healthy feet are happy feet!
