Are Your Feet Healthy?

Your Feet Are Important

Even people who try to cover all the bases—avoiding fattening foods, hitting the gym and wearing sunscreen—may not be able to answer yes.

Doctors say people often ignore persistent but minor foot complaints, which can later develop into bigger problems, like lower back pain. Some common foot problems can mask underlying issues that are correctable if addressed early. Tender feet might be a sign of a pinched nerve, for example, or bunions might stem from weak arches. Other foot ailments, such as sores that don't heal, can point to a more serious condition, such as diabetes.

Podiatrists say foot ailments are a growing problem as more people get physically active. Running marathons, for instance, puts added pressure on the feet and can worsen existing issues that might be caused by genetics or poor footwear choices. Feet also must bear the burden from the growing numbers of people who are overweight or obese.

Many people don't wear shoes with proper support, which is especially harmful for active athletes, says Leslie Campbell, a spokeswoman for the American Podiatric Medical Association, a professional organization. "We see more young children coming in because they play sports like soccer and wear cleats, which are rigid, don't absorb shock, cause fatigue and should be worn as little as possible".

Achy feet shouldn't just be explained away by old age or standing a lot, says Dr. Charles. Rubbing the feet after a long day should feel good. But if the feet are tender to the touch, this could reveal an underlying problem such as overworked muscles or weak arches. Often the wrong shoes are to blame, so try footwear with more support.
