I have a drawer in my house where I put all the things that I don’t want to deal with immediately. Out of sight, out of mind…right? Not really. Just because your feet are all bundled up in socks and shoes during the winter, doesn’t mean that your foot problems have gone away. So why does everyone wait until it’s sandal time before worrying about the health of their feet?
In addition to your scheduled appointments with your podiatrist, you should be making regular visits to the PediCare salon. There are several reasons for this.
- Foot health is actually more important in the winter. During the summer, we pamper our feet because we have them on display, but there’s actually more to consider during the cold months when our feet are bundled up. For example, temperature. In addition to keeping our feet healthy, we need to keep them warm. This means choosing the right socks and shoes. Cold feet can lead to dryness and cracking. Warm feet lead to sweating which creates the perfect environment for fungus. The PediCare salon is designed to combat these situations before they become actual problems. After all, wouldn’t you rather have a trip to the salon over a trip to the doctor?
- Don’t wait to get healthy. Every summer, advertisements start telling us to get our bodies ready for bikini season. But if you really wanted to be ready, shouldn’t you start preparing early? Your feet are the same way (and arguably easier to take care of). If you have dry feet and cracked heels during the winter, take care of it during the winter! That way you aren’t rushing for a quick fix come the first warm day of spring. Fungal nail infections can take anywhere from six weeks to four months to be resolved. If you wait to start treatment or prevention until later, sandal season will be over before the infection is gone. Get your appointment today to be ready when summer hits.
- If you’re someone who gets pedicures already, why not try a PediCare visit instead? Services range from a 30-minute, no frills pedicure to a full service, relaxing foot and leg massage. In addition to these services, you can rest easy knowing that you are working with a certified nail technician, trained specifically under the direction of a podiatrist. The PediCare salon also has a strict adherence to medical safety and sterilization techniques, meaning no chance of infection as with normal pedicures. If you’re paying the same price, why not get more for your money? (Oh, did I mention the affordable pricing?). A visit to the PediCare salon can forever change the way you think of a pedicure.
Overall, there are plenty of reasons to make an appointment at the PediCare salon today, but if you are one of the many who have pledged to make this year their healthiest yet, this is the perfect place to start. After all, who said getting healthy had to be painful? Appointments available Monday through Friday, just call 740-363-4373!
