4 Foot Health Facts You Didn’t Know
Have you thought about your feet today? Chances are that you only think about your feet when they are bothering you somehow. Maybe they are tired from a long day of working on them, or maybe you stubbed your big toe running up the stairs this morning and it’s just now starting to throb. Whatever the case, it’s not likely that you think about your feet unless there is a problem! In today’s blog from Steri Shoe, we’ll talk about four of our favorite foot health facts to keep you more informed about this prominent part of your body that deserves just a little more attention.
Foot Changes May Point to Bigger Health Problems
Surprisingly, your feet can be a good indicator of what’s going on in your body and your overall health. If you’ve noticed lately that your feet are swelling, you’re experiencing numbness and tingling, or they are more stiff than normal, you should talk to your doctor right away. These symptoms can indicate high blood pressure, arthritis, and even nerve problems or diabetes.
