Keep Your Feet Feeling Sweet With Chiropractic Tips

By Brandi Goodman 

Your feet can easily become sore and achy if you aren't taking care of them properly. Wearing the wrong shoes, failing to keep your nails trimmed, and never stretching them out are all typical culprits of foot pain. Keep your feet feeling sweet instead with some chiropractic tips in mind. 

Wear the Right Shoes

The right pair of shoes can do wonders for your feet, while the wrong ones will leave them aching. You need to be sure you're sizing your feet regularly and using the correct measurements to select your shoe size. You never want a pair that's far too tight and causes you discomfort from the get-go, but you also don't want to wear overly large shoes that have your feet pushing forward and scrunching your toes as you walk. It's also wise to have several pairs so that you aren't wearing down the same ones daily. 

Keep Your Arches Supported

This goes along with wearing the right shoes, but you want to be sure you're focusing on keeping your arches supported. If you can find a suitable shoe with comfortable padding, that should suffice. Otherwise, you may need to purchase a separate arch support insert to place inside the shoe to offer some added comfort. This can help you walk more comfortably and keep pain at bay, especially if you're someone who has to walk long distances each day or be on your feet for hours.

Trim Your Toenails

Long toenails may seem fine when you're barefoot, but inside of shoes is a different story. You don't want your nails pushing against the front of the shoe and causing you pain. It may force you to walk a little differently to avoid the discomfort, which can lead to additional pain in your feet and legs.

Stretch Your Feet

Your feet need a good stretch several times per day. When you first wake up, before and after activities, and at the end of the day are the times you should stretch, at the very least. Roll your ankle several times to one direction and then back the other direction. Lift your toes toward the ceiling and then point them down. Some simple stretches like this can help alleviate some of the tension your feet are feeling.

Foot pain doesn't have to be your usual experience. Utilize these tips so you can get the relief you need for your lower extremities. Follow this advice with a trip to the chiropractor for the ultimate relief.
