• WALK! This is the best form of exercise for your feet.
  • Wear properly fitting, protective footwear even in your own home.
  • Use ice (cold) to treat an injury. This treatment produces a numbing effect and prevents swelling and pain.
  • Investigate "walking pumps." These shoes have an athletic shoe-derived construction, wider toe room, reinforced heels and are available in many fashionable styles.
  • Seek medical attention at the first sign of an injury or infection in the foot or ankle. Treatments require an investment of time and sometimes include surgery - the foot isn't just a beauty concern.
  • Consult a podiatric physician regularly. There are 300 different foot ailments, none of which should be neglected.
