Welcome to....

Northern Foot Care Center's Blog!

We want to stay in touch with you! Check our blog often to find out what’s happening. We hope to share helpful and “healthful” information with you regarding your feet.

The cold and snowy weather has made its presence known in the Upper Peninsula this year. It took awhile but it’s finally here. Winter can take its toll on your feet! During the cold months of the year we are especially prone to allowing our foot care routine to lapse.

Our feet are usually nestled in bulky socks and buried deep in boots. The most common foot problems in the winter are dry, cracked skin and chilblains (small, itchy, red swellings on the skin which expose the foot to the risk of infection). The most important thing to remember in foot care during the winter months is to maintain a steady temperature. Trying not to expose your feet to extreme heat or cold is very important. This is particularly critical for diabetics, who frequently develop neuropathy (the loss of sensation) in their feet and are unable to feel pain. Even if you are just stepping outside for a brief moment to get the paper or take the dog out, be sure to put shoes/boots and socks on and always keep your feet dry.

Dr. Reminga at Northern Foot Care Center says, “Many health problems first manifest themselves in the foot, proper foot care is important to overall health, and is critical for diabetics.”

At Northern Foot Care Center, we provide a wide selection of products for your feet in our office that can help to heal your dry, cracked skin. Also visit our on-line store at: http://www.ourdoctorstore.com/reminga/.
