Simple Steps to Better Foot Care

As you probably know, peripheral neuropathy most commonly afflicts the feet first. And most adults suffer from some type of foot problem as well. But there really are some simple steps to better foot care you can begin to do today!

How well do you take care of your feet?

Initially, better foot care comes something as a shock to most patients. Too many of us ignore our feet until we have a painful or debilitating disorder like neuropathy.

You see, foot pain and neuropathy is much more than pain, tingling and numbness.

Often times there are changes in sensation which affect your balance and your ability to walk normally. Commonly, the shape of your feet will change due to muscle weakness over time or after an injury. This why some of the orthotics you see above can be so very helpful.

There are also changes in skin texture. Patients with peripheral neuropathy and foot pain often find their feet become cold. Cracking of the skin becomes more common. Unfortunately, infections like toenail fungus can happen too. Foot ulcers can be devastating and lead to amputation or worse.

So let’s talk about some of the simple things that you can do on a daily basis to help proper foot care.

The first thing you can do is to make sure that your shoes fit properly. Do not ignore things such as overgrown toenails, which can affect proper shoe fit. If you’re diabetic, your nails should be professionally trimmed by a podiatrist at least once per month.

Next, consider using either light wool, silk or microfiber socks. These socks do not trap moisture, which can make infections and perspiration problems worse.

Finally, be very careful in your choice of bath and shower soaps. Be sure to thoroughly dry and visually inspect the tops and bottoms of your feet every day! There are natural products such as those containing Tea tree oil, which are beneficial in helping prevent athlete’s foot and common fungal infections.

In terms of care, we commonly advise use of our #NDGen, #wearablelaser and #orthotics all of which you can see in our clinics or HERE In Our Self-Care Store

Take better care of your feet every day, ask for our help early on and do not let issues go untreated or fester. and foot pain as well as #neuropathytreatment success will also be easier!

Neuropathy, Pain and Foot Care

Maybe you are overweight, have diabetes or maybe you’ve completed a course of chemotherapy. Or if you suffer from pain or burning in your feet, legs or hands, you’re not alone. More than half the people suffering from neuropathy and foot pain report that they’ve tried complementary treatments in addition to traditional medicine to help relieve their pain and especially improve overall health and well being.

We all need to take special care of our feet and be very aware of any sign of problems. The older we get the more important this becomes.This week let’s talk more about neuropathy, pain and foot care. There are many things you can do daily at home to help you. Here are few to really focus on.

If you are Overweight or have Diabetes tightly control your blood sugar.

This may sound like a no-brainer but many people with diabetes don’t realize how toxic high blood sugar is. High blood sugar is what causes nerve pain and damage. Keeping blood sugar levels close to normal can not only stop ongoing damage; some damage may even be reversible. That provides even more promise for fighting neuropathy pain.

Take Exceptional Care of Your Feet

Nerve pain is usually what brings people in to see their doctors. But the numbness in their feet and inability to feel even the smallest injury can lead to infections and ulceration and ultimately end in amputation. If you suffer from peripheral neuropathy you need pain and foot care. Carefully inspect your feet every time you shower and be very aware of any sign of problems. Some things you can do are:

  • Clean and inspect your feet every day. If you have any irritation or wound that’s not healing properly, get medical care immediately.
  • Wear comfortable shoes. Don’t wear shoes that pinch your toes or rub blisters on your heels.
  • Wear padded socks to cushion the ball of your feet and the heel.
  • Either cut your toenails straight across or have a professional do it for you.

All of these things can go a long way to making your quality of life with neuropathy pain and foot care as good as it can be!

Why Does Neuropathy Foot Pain Hurt So Bad?

Millions of patients around the world wake up each day wondering, “why does this neuropathy foot pain have to ruin my day?” The pain, burning, numbness and tingling are sometimes just too much to bear. Many would rather just go back to sleep and pretend it’s not time to face the world.

Well, what if you could face the world with your neuropathy pain under control? What if there was a way to make it better? Would you be interested?

That’s a question many patients would say yes too immediately. But, sometimes people like to understand what’s happening that makes them hurt so bad.

What Causes Neuropathy Foot Pain?

Neuropathy foot pain can be difficult to understand because it’s caused by many factors. Here are just a few of the possible causes:

  • Diabetes
  • Chemotherapy
  • Injury
  • Idiopathic – this means we don’t even know the cause
  • Toxic exposure
  • Genetics
  • Metabolic problems
  • And there’s still more

What happens is that the nerves are damaged by one of these disease processes. Symptoms can range from sensory problems like temperature, pain or touch intolerances to muscle weakness and even paralysis. The neuropathy foot pain is directly related to damaged nerves in the feet and legs. Although, there are other nerves throughout the body that may damaged as well.

Nuropathy foot pain associated with sensory nerves often begins gradually and worsens over time. At first, it can likely be ignored as a discomfort, but often leads to varied levels of intolerance. Hopefully, you seek help early and not after much progression has occurred. Early intervention often leads to the best outcomes.

What Kind of Help Is There for Foot Neuropathy?

The feet are often one of the first “victims” of neuropathic pain. From burning and tingling to crazy itching and prickling. The discomfort can progress to severe pain. The key is to treat before symptoms become severe. Though there is help for severe pain, faster relief can be had when symptoms are not as pronounced.

One of the therapies that has been shown to be effective is neurostimulation. Our team at neuropathydr.com has worked tirelessly to take this to the next level. That’s what led us to create the NDGen neurostimulation system. When the NDGen is combined with our conduction socks (nice and comfy), your feet will know they’ve finally found relief.
