In addition to supporting your overall well-being, following a nutritious diet and getting sufficient exercise also helps to protect the health of your feet. A well-balanced diet, as well as staying active with exercise reduces your risk of systemic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, and varicose veins, which can all be detrimental to the health and function of your feet.
As part of our mission to support optimal foot health, our practice offers dietary guidance on both the macronutrients and micronutrients your body needs to do all the work of growing, maintaining, and repairing itself. We’ll also review which foods offer anti-inflammatory benefits and what foods need to be reduced or eliminated from your diet. On the critical topic of exercise, we'll discuss a regimen of exercise that suits your needs. The goals of a well-planned exercise routine are to increase blood circulation as well as to support foot health while avoiding activities that increase your risk of injury.
