Did you know that many major foot amputations usually start out as something small such as a cut, ingrown toenail, or swelling of the ankles or feet? Unfortunately, people seem to only tend to their feet when there already is a problem, but feet need preventative care too. Treat your feet in the same way you care for your teeth, in addition to fixing emergencies, make a point to schedule routine checkups and care.*
We take care of ourselves, but too often we neglect our feet. Make an effort to check your feet often at home, and give them professional care annually. This advice is especially important for the elderly and the disabled.
