Foot Health Products Make A Difference
Foot health is something we generally think about only once the problem has gotten bad. But foot health products can make a difference!
A Mile in My Shoes
"By the time an American reaches the age of 50, on average, he or she has already walked a total of 75,000 miles." -American Podiatric Association
The average adult takes 4,000 - 7,000 steps per day.
On Your Feet All Day
Our feet carry us. It is where the pressure collects. Pressure on your feet when walking or running can be as much as 5 times your body weight.
Experienced hikers have a saying for this: "a pound on your feet equals five pounds on your back."
Perhaps you're reading this article due to a foot injury. Or perhaps your feet are starting to show signs of wear and tear. You may be experiencing reduced mobility or poor circulation in your lower legs.
Either way, (no more delay), here's how you can make your feet fell okay!
Foot Health Products That Work
You make your feet happy by moving them.
“People unable to move about suffer numerous physical, psychological, and social afflictions as a direct or indirect result of foot dysfunction," says Michael J. Trepal, dean of New York College of Podiatric Medicine.
A foot gym is an all in one device for foot and ankle exercises. Used to ameliorate plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis and foot pain, the foot gym is ideal for individuals recovering from surgeries or physical injuries. It offers 7 different exercise and massage therapy programs guaranteed to strengthen and improve the dexterity of your feet. It comes with a complimentary hot and cold therapy massage roller, and sliding weighted bars so you can practice your coordination. Buy the foot gym here.
Foot Massager Ball
Did you know that there are over 7,000 nerve endings in each foot?
This ingenious product consists of a little ball that is used to massage troubled spots. Effective in providing relief from plantar fasciitis, helping to round out the foot, relieving some of the tension on the horizontal tendon at the base of the foot. You control the depth and force of the massage by the pressure you apply to it. Massage balls isolate problem areas in your body and enable you to make the change - at your own pace - required to increase flexibility and reduce pain. The bumps on the ball help improve the grip, and won’t slide easily across the floor or your skin. Each crevice works on the plantar fascia, helping to decrease the inflammation at the base of the heel. You are your own deep massage therapist! Purchase yours.
Gel Cushions and Bunion Guards
As we enter our 30's and 40's, the natural fat pads on the bottom of our feet thin out. To make up for this loss of collagen and elastin people opt for properly cushioned footwear.
Visco-GEL is a brand that releases vitamin E and mineral oil to soothe and soften skin. It is so discreet that it fits in the tightest of shoes. Find the right bunion guard for you on this page. You will find guards for the big toe, little toe, heel, and arch of the foot.
Soft gel cushions relieve pain and make shoes more comfortable. They protect sore bunions from pressure, excess chafing, redness, and soreness as caused by friction. Enjoy greater foot comfort with sleeve style slips that relieve aching bunions.
Place anywhere protection is needed! Callus protectors are recommended by podiatrists when callouses, blisters, and “the pillows of the feet” become swollen and tough. It can be extremely painful to step on a callous, especially one that has been forming over years (or decades) due to tight shoes and standing on one’s feet. For this reason, Leather Care recommends taking care of your feet with self-adhesive backings. They are trimmable, and can be placed anywhere on the foot where excess friction occurs. Get yours here and take the pressure of your calluses!
Foot Sweat 😓😓😓😓😓😓😓
Did you know:
- There are 250,000 sweat glands in the feet.
- Your two feet can produce half a pint of sweat a day
For foot sweat we recommend reading "Your Shoes Got Wet- Now What?"
Benjamin Franklin once said “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” By taking care of your feet now, you will be more prepared for your aging body in the future. Be sure to use it, as in the case of the foot gym and foot massage ball, or you may find that your flexibility and strength are severely reduced in the golden years ahead.
