MD Podiatrist Recommends Daily Feet Exams on I Love My Feet Day

August 17 was National I Love My Feet Day. It is a day to appreciate how valuable our feet are and practice good foot care, and pamper our feet. Dan Michaels, DPM says, “Many people don’t bother with their feet until it hurts and then they come in and see me, and then we take care of it. So take care of your feet every day.”
“If you have diabetes, it is important to check your feet every day. Take off your shoes and socks, and look carefully between your toes. If you have trouble with your vision or can’t access your feet, get someone to look at them,” says Dr. Michaels.
