If you need help with your balance and getting your feet
into a correct position, speak with your podiatrist about the benefits of orthotics.
Orthotics are custom-made inserts that you place inside of your footwear. There
are different styles of orthotics to accommodate different types of shoes or
boots. Anyone with foot issues such as bunions, calluses, arthritis, or tendonitis
can find relief with the use of orthotics. Although orthotics do not actually
alter the structure of the feet, they will control the way your feet move, and
can result in the relief of foot, knee, and hip pain. By compensating for foot
issues, your orthotics may delay or even eliminate the need to surgically
address foot problems.
If you have any questions regarding your feet, please don't hesitate to

Early detection is critical when it comes to melanoma of the
foot. This type of cancer is easy to overlook but can have deadly consequences
if allowed to go untreated.
When checking for any signs of this disease, be
sure to notice the soles, the area in between the toes, and the skin around or
under the toenails for any freckles or spots that have changed over time. Any
alteration in the border, color, diameter, or elevation of a freckle or spot should
be immediately reported to your podiatrist since those are the main indicators
of melanoma of the foot.
Routine self-exams are the keys to ensure early
identification of this potential deadly disease.
