Wearing Proper Shoes

Welcome to Home Health House Calls.

You walk on your feet every day, forcing them to support the weight of your body. Repeated stress on your feet can cause damage over time.
The right shoes can help protect your feet.
It is important to find a shoe that fits your foot needs.
A good shoe has features that provide comfort and support.
It must also be the right size and shape for your feet.
Look for a shoe made of breathable fabric and lining, such as leather or canvas.
Be sure that shoes have enough tread to prevent slipping.
Always wear socks with shoes.
Socks help absorb sweat and reduce friction and blistering.
If you have foot problems, it could be hard to find a good fit.
Talk to your healthcare provider, he or she may be able to recommend a certain brand that will work for you.
