April is National Foot Health Awareness Month: MD Podiatrist

Since April is National Foot Health Awareness Month, what better time to remind you how to show a little love and respect for a body part many take for granted. “Most problems occur from poor footwear choices, poor hygiene or personal foot care, and lack of exercise,” says Dan Michaels, DPM.
“Examine your feet daily, looking for minor changes such as redness, irritation, calluses, and toenail fungus,” Dr. Michaels says. “And, if you have pain in your feet that lasts for two or more days, you should see a podiatric foot and ankle specialist.”
