You’re up early on your feet, making breakfast and packing lunches. You’re always running around, picking up toys and walking their dog. When everything is said and done - you’re their hero, and here at My FootDr, you’re ours too, mum!
While having a little one to care for seems to amplify physical activity ten-fold for mums and dads alike, differences in our bodies can make women more vulnerable to developing a number of pains and problems. Today, we’re sharing four common foot problems we see in mums, why they occur more frequently, and what can be done to help.
If you have barely enough time to sit down, let alone read this article, scroll down to the TLDR (too long, didn’t read) sections at the bottom of every foot problem for a quick summary.
Summer is just around the corner, and that means flaunting your feet at the beach, in your sandals at the park, or from the comfort of your air-conditioned lounge! While that sounds like a dream come true for some, others may feel less comfortable because of changes to the appearance of their toenails. Whether your nails have thickened, become yellow or have an infection, you don’t have to put up with it. Today, we’re sharing three ways that our podiatrists can help restore the appearance of your toenails to help you feel better on your feet.
Our podiatrists use orthotics to help thousands of patients every year with problems and pains in their feet, legs, knees, hips and back. So, if you’ve ever wondered how these prescription insoles work on a large variety of problems for people of all ages and activity levels, or if you may need them, this is for you.
How can orthotics help treat so many different problems?
Orthotics can help so many pains and problems for the same reason that glasses from your optometrist can help almost anyone see clearly, regardless of their sight variations. Custom orthotics are prescribed by your qualified podiatrist, specifically for your problem, foot type, the results of your assessment, and what you need to achieve the best results for your feet. This means that no pair of orthotics are the same, even if they look similar - just like glasses.
