The Care and Feeding of Feet and Legs
① Inspect your feet daily. You are the first line of defense! If you have any problems with circulation, diabetes, sensation, PLEASE have a professional check them out every 60 days. Immediately call if you see or feel blood on your sock, swelling, pain, dry skin, smell or any wound or bruise ANYTHING! If not us, someone!
② Moisturize your feet every day but not between your toes. Put on socks and shoes. Don’t slip on hard floors with slippery feet.
③ Keep your nails properly trimmed. Do not pull on anything hanging (skin or nails). If you have thick dystrophic nails, call a professional.
④ Elevate your feet when sitting. Don’t cross your legs and do move regularly.
⑤ Only buy shoes that fit well.
⑥ Smoke? Stop!
