Sometimes the focus on our foot health seems far from other health-related issues. We’re not sure why, but we know the facts: Foot health is another important part of your overall health. April is National Foot Health Awareness Month, and we hope you can change your perspective on how you approach health care. It can start today. It’s never too late.
Dr. Naghmeh Lilly Khavari of the Carrollton Foot Center has the privilege of caring for her community’s foot and ankle needs. There are common foot concerns that worsen over time if left untreated. Unfortunately, we can also fall for the myth that foot health isn’t that big of a deal. We can create excuses for delaying appointments or even rescheduling recurring visits to the podiatrist. We hope you’ll think differently as we share more reasons to focus on your feet.
Everything is connected.
Do you think there is a connection between your foot health and overall health? It is. There are many health conditions that a patient can first detect simply by noticing changes in their feet. When we fail to understand the significance of our foot health, we could be missing out on other health concerns.
- Foot health and heart health are related
- Nutrition choices affect your feet
- Poor circulation, swelling, and non-healing wounds could signal a problem
There are solutions.
Did you know many solutions to your foot and ankle pain are quite simple? It all starts with scheduling an appointment with your podiatrist. Allow a foot and ankle specialist to care for your needs. Podiatrists provide an accurate diagnosis, a treatment plan, and prevention tips.
- Don’t tackle foot health alone
- Maintain regular communication with your podiatrist
- It’s always okay to schedule your first visit
Fix problems now.
Like other health conditions, untreated issues may reappear in the future. Fix your foot and ankle issues now. Don’t wait until a problem has worsened or progressed to require surgery as the only solution. For many common conditions, the solutions will surprise you. Take care of your foot health and take charge of your future health.
