At Palermo Physiotherapy and Wellness, located in the new Palermo Professional Centre at the corner of Old Bronte and Dundas street, we believe it is important to take care of your feet. Often in the winter because our feet are trapped in shoes, socks, and slippers our feet and foot care gets put on the back burner and we scramble closer to the summer when we may be barefoot again. Taking care of your feet significantly contributes to your overall health, an as such it’s important to choose wisely when it comes to your footwear. Foot problems can arise from improper footwear and may lead to problems in other areas of your body including hips, knees, lower back as well as the feet themselves. Foot problems can also take a toll on your foot function, comfort and energy comsumption.
For example, shoes that are too tight or fit improperly lead to calluses, corns, bursitis and skin breakdown. It is important to invest in quality footwear to prevent and maintain the health of your feet and overall well-being. A good shoe will support the foot well while standing, walking or running and decrease risk of injury. Proper width, length, depth and last are also very important. The Foot Clinic in Palermo Physio and Wellness Centre now offers a wide variety of Orthopaedic Shoes to fit individual needs and comfort
You shouldn’t have to suffer with lower limb or foot pain and at the Foot Clinic at Palermo Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre, we aim to provide the best foot care possible to give you back that spring in your step. Visit us at our Foot Care Clinic to learn how to put your best foot forward!
