Spring Foot Health


Caring for your feet is imperative to your health all year round, but you’ll want to make sure your feet are in good condition before spring activities and sandal weather. With a bit of guidance from Dr. Hochstein at Great Neck Family Foot Care, you can get your feet ready for spring. Here are some valuable spring foot care tips:


  • Check your Feet – You should be examining your feet every day for any cracks, pain, blisters, and corns. If you notice any new injuries or dry skin, our podiatrist can help treat them and get your feet back to optimal health. 
  • Nail Health – With your feet bundled up in thick socks and boots all winter, it’s a good idea to take care of your nails before stepping out in sandals. Make sure to trim your toenails straight across to avoid painful ingrown toenails. If you are dealing with toenail fungus, getting swift treatment can help you manage this problem. 
  • Footwear – It’s essential to choose comfortable, protective footwear to keep your feet healthy and happy. Avoid flip-flops and opt for supportive and comfy summer shoes. You can also apply sunscreen to your feet to prevent skin damage.
