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.
