I know what you’re thinking. We just passed Halloween, it’s too early to talk about the snow! The reality is, however, that it is never too early to prepare for the winter months to come…especially when you or a loved one have any foot or ankle related issues. Seeing your podiatrist before the winter season has many benefits…here are just some of those!
- Asking all of those questions that have been piling up.Let’s face it. All of us have “the list.” It’s a slowly, or rapidly compiling list somewhere on a sticky note in our desk, on the fridge, or maybe even in our phones. By seeing your podiatrist before it snows, you can get all of those lingering questions off your mind.
- Checking up on older issues before the weather gets bad.Depending on how long it’s been since you last saw your podiatrist, it’s probably time to check up on those pre-existing issues from a year ago. Be sure to let the doctor know what has changed in your life, such as your activity level–maybe you just started jogging!
- Running your winter footwear by your doctor.Seeing your podiatrist before it snows is a fantastic opportunity to run your winter footwear by them and get the seal of approval…or is it the shoe of approval? Either way, your podiatrist can offer insight into how safe your shoes are for the winter season.
- Getting tips and tricks on how to stay foot-safe in the snow.
Speaking of winter footwear, what good is a pair of shoes if you’re not prepared to get the most out of them? You can have the most high quality pair of orthotic shoes, but you will still want to be prepared to keep your feet safe in inclement weather.
