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 contact our Family Foot Care at 704-786-4482 or visit our website at http://www.familyfootcare.info/.

HINT: Orthotics are made in rigid, semi-rigid, and soft construction types.

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.
