Welcome to Feet for Life In our lifetime our feet will walk an average of 70, miles. This is the equivalent of walking four times around the globe. During this time we will experience the pain of "breaking in" new shoes, blisters, corns, generalized foot and ankle pain and even some infections. All of these conditions can be treated by podiatrists, who are uniquely trained to evaluate, diagnose and manage all conditions affecting the foot and ankle.
In an average lifetime, you walk , miles, apparently: wonderful exercise, and what our bodies were designed to do, but there are some sensible precautions you can take to ensure that your feet continue to give good service. Dry them thoroughly, and cut your toenails regularly, if you can. It will be easier after washing, when they are softened. Cut straight across and not too short. Cutting down at the corners may encourage painful ingrowing toenails. A file or emery board may be easier than nail clippers. Check with a podiatrist or other health professional before using any over-the-counter treatments for corns.
