How Can I Treat Cracked Heels?
How you move, how you feel, how you live, comes down to your feet. That’s why at My FootDr, we believe that healthy feet can lead to a better quality of life.
Feel like the cracks in your heels have come up out of nowhere this summer? You’re not alone. Cracked heels are a common source of frustration - from the dry ridges on the skin catching on socks, to the discomfort or pain when walking on the cracks, to their appearance in open-backed shoes that some try to hide.
Fungal nail infections are a frustrating problem that leaves approximately one in ten Australians feeling disheartened every time they look down at their feet. While it’s easy to ignore the problem during the winter months while keeping our feet constantly wrapped up in shoes and socks, this beaming summer weather means that those fungal nails are now difficult to ignore.
Heel pain is a common source of frustration for many Australians whose jobs, physical and social activities, and their overall lives can become greatly restricted when they’re battling this frustrating problem. Foot orthotics are one proposed treatment for heel pain where a device that resembles a footbed is inserted inside the shoe, in place of the shoe liner.
