Good Foot Health & Hygiene

It's time to become acquainted with your feet. Are you aware of the services available today to keep your feet healthy and happy? Most people routinely get their health check by their primary care physician or get their teeth checked by their dentist. Far too often we forget about our feet. Did you ever stop to think what your feet do for you? Your feet go to work as soon as you get out of bed and don't stop working until you go back to bed. Your feet take you everywhere you need to go. In the United States, 80% or more of the people, will suffer from feet or foot ailments sometime during their life. Long standing sore feet can cause significant disruptions to all aspects of a persons' life. Be conscious of what your feet do for you. Recognize the warnings signs of tired, aching feet, ankles and legs and consult Dr. Joseph E. Mechanik, a dual Board Certified Podiatrist.
