Did you know April is National Foot Health Awareness Month? At Clark Podiatry Center, we want you to be aware of your feet year-round. However, we use this month as a special time to remind people about how small changes at home can make a big difference with their foot health.

Dr. Brandon A. Macy shares three quick changes to boost your awareness:

Remove the polish

Did you know your toenails can reveal not only your foot health but also some details about your overall health? For fungal toenails, patients can often miss changes hidden under nail polish. In between coats, take a closer look at your toenails. Make an appointment if you notice brittle toenails or a color change.

Toss the shoes

If you’re still holding on to ill-fitting shoes, you’re doing more harm than good. The wrong size is the wrong answer for your feet. They can cause pain or even worsen current conditions like bunions. Ask your podiatrist about the next pair of shoes you should buy. As always, go shoe shopping later in the day to make sure your feet are at their largest.

Call the professionals

Before you attempt to do bathroom surgery on an ingrown toenail, call the professionals. Podiatrists are trained to diagnose and treat common foot conditions. Your attempts can cause more pain or even lead to infection. Make an appointment with our office today. We’re here to help.

We hope you enjoy finding more ways to increase your foot health awareness. These recommendations are only the beginning, but they can be a great start to getting you on the right track. At Clark Podiatry Center, Dr. Brandon A. Macy, a board-certified podiatrist, treats various conditions such as heel pain, diabetic wounds, bunions, nerve pain, and more. The New Jersey Children’s Foot Health Institute is also part of Clark Podiatry Center. We provide exceptional service for patients in Union County. Contact our office at (732) 382-3470 or schedule an appointment online. Our office is at 1114 Raritan Road, Clark, NJ 07066.
