Ever wonder why your feet are so ticklish? It’s because there are 8,000 nerves in the feet. While ticklish feet are usually a good indication of health, non-ticklish feet can indicate problems with nerve receptors caused by illnesses such as diabetes mellitus, arthritis, a vitamin deficiency or thyroid problems.

There are 250,000 sweat glands in a pair of feet, capable of producing up to half a pint of sweat a day! Without proper care, sweaty feet can cause skin rashes, yeast infections, athlete’s foot, fungal toenails and warts. But effective daily hygiene, good foot care practices and visits to the podiatrist can keep sweaty feet in check.

It’s important to visit your podiatrist for a biomechanical assessment at the first sign of foot discomfort, poor balance or unexplained corns and calluses.

Did you know that your foot has 26 bones, 33 joints and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments? Each step you take involves all these parts working together – so even the smallest injury or structural flaw can cause pain and interfere with your daily activities.

Although some simple treatments for ingrown toenails can be performed at home, performing “bathroom surgery” to remove an ingrown toenail can actually make the condition worse! The safest and most effective approach is to see your podiatrist for proper diagnosis and treatment.
