Winter Foot Care

Your dry hands likely get extra attention during the winter, but what about your feet? Our foot doctor in Joliet is experienced in common foot-related ailments that take place during the winter months, so we have compiled some helpful tips on how to not only ensure your feet survive this winter but thrive instead.

Wear Shoes with Grip

Walking around the Chicago streets in shoes that don’t have grip will result in disaster. Thanks to the ice and snow, you may end up with a rolled or broken ankle. You may also fall and injure other parts of your body. Wearing shoes or boots that are designed for the snow is your best bet in staying safe. If you work in an office environment, it’s easy to throw regular shoes in your bag and change into them at work.

Soak Your Feet

The dry winter air takes a toll on your skin, including your feet. You may notice that your feet are especially dry and cracked during the winter time. To combat this, you can soak your feet in a warm tub with a cup of Epsom salt. This combination can help minimize potential infections. Use lotion and other moisturizers on a daily basis, and wear socks to lock in moisture whenever possible.

Wear Proper Socks

Thick, cozy socks can help keep your feet dry and warm on days that are particularly snowy and icy. The right pair of socks makes all of the difference in staying comfortable, even simply for lounging around the house.

If you are experiencing foot pain or some sort of foot abnormality, contact our foot doctor in Joliet today!
