Here is a list of the Top 5 things you should resolve to do for better foot and lower limb health:
If you have one resolution for better foot and lower limb health, stretching should be it!
Stretching reduces muscle tension, improves range of motion, increases coordination, and it can even increase circulation and energy levels. Most of us are less active in the winter months and don’t feel like braving the cold temperatures for some exercise, and stretching is the perfect remedy to keep you limber and healthy over the winter season and throughout the rest of the year.
While winter boots are mostly about “warmth”, they also need to be about “fit”. Ensuring your winter boots fit properly while providing the appropriate support you require is critical to having feet that are both warm and comfortable.
A boot that is too tight or short may lead to cold feet. When consulting a footwear expert such as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist, don’t be surprised if you end up being fit in a winter boot in a half size bigger than your regular footwear. The larger size allows for a layer of warm air to surround your foot inside the boot, keeping you warmer.
I am delighted to officially welcome you to the Pedorthic Association of Canada’s newly revamped and re-energized website! Why redesign our website you might ask? Well, we’ve decided to change who we’re speaking to which means we needed to change how we’re speaking.
You see, for years the Pedorthic Association of Canada had focused on educating physicians and healthcare providers about the benefits of Pedorthics. Of course, healthcare providers still continue to be our valued partners. It’s a privilege for Pedorthists to be included in so many physicians’ treatment teams across the country.
