The state of New York saw its share of the Coronavirus pandemic. As we re-open and wait patiently for the virus to subside, we at Westchester Podiatric Healing Medicine, P.C., have noticed an increase of patients experiencing foot pain.
Whether you are outdoors or quarantining at home, good foot health is paramount to your overall health and wellness. Our board-certified podiatrist, Dr. John C. Marzano, has traced some of the common sources of foot pain, which include:
During self-quarantine, many people switched to wearing their slippers 24/7. And why not? They are comfy and are easy to put on and take off. But what’s important to know is that slippers are not designed like shoes. They rarely offer any cushioning, arch, or heel support that your feet need. Similarly, many people are avoiding shoes altogether and walking barefoot. Without proper support, feet often experience pain or discomfort, and this can transfer to other parts of the body.
If you have been wearing slippers or going barefoot for extended periods during much of your quarantined period, you may experience issues in different areas of your feet.
You don’t have to suffer from foot pain. You can find the highest level of skilled and compassionate care at the office of Westchester Podiatric Healing Medicine, P.C. . For more information on foot health and the many services we provide, call Dr. Marzano at (914) 423-0600 for an appointment today.
