Have World Cup fever yet? Remember that proper foot care is always important with soccer and other sports. One of the most common injuries seen is loss of a toenail or blood underneath. Trauma to the toe causes this common ailment and usually requires podiatric treatment. if treatment is done quickly and correctly, this may help the nail from falling off. #DrJeraldKriger #worldcupsoccer #podiatrycare #nailinjury

Did you know our Commander in Chief suffers from Plantar Fasciitis? He isn't the only one. About 2 million patients are treated for this painful condition every year. What is Plantar Fasciitis? It's when the tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes becomes inflamed.

Finally, winter is over! It's almost beach season again. Dr. Kriger would like to remind you to be careful in the sun and sand. Always put sunblock on your feet to help keep the delicate skin from burning. Also, walking in the sand might feel fabulous, but be cautious of injuries and infections that can occur frequently from those tiny pieces of sand. #DrKriger,#beachseason,#healthyfeet,#toesinthesand

What we eat affects our feet! Refined grains, sugar, and trans fat can lead to inflammation and pain.
