Don’t Let A Foot Injury Dampen Your Summer.
FIND THE PERFECT SANDAL. WITH MAJOR SUPPORT, AND MAKE SURE THE SANDAL HAS ADJUSTMENT AND WIGGLE ROOM FOR YOUR FEET! CAN EXTRA WIDE RUNNING SHOES OR OUTDOOR SANDAL STYLING HELP?
Being active is how we stay feeling young and agile.
Whether it’s on the park path, golf course of the mountain pass, your feet are the foundation of your fitness and wellbeing.
One wrong move–a slip, twist, or strain–can spell weeks of pain and lack of mobility, in addition to being housebound, when you could be enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.
Know your feet
It’s easy to overlook–since our feet perform so well most of the time–but each foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
If any of those are out of whack or injured not, only will your feet hurt, you’ll begin to notice alignment issues elsewhere.
Get the right footwear
Wherever your day takes you, and whatever the activity, putting your feet in the right footgear can be the deciding factor between continued fun or disabling injury.
The range of footwear available today is designed for every category of sport, fitness routine, and activity.
That little extra time you spend securing the right shoe will help your feet stay stable, and give the proper comfort and support. It’s well worth it compared to just “winging it” with substandard footwear that will not give you optimal performance, nor protection.
Avoid flimsy flips
Flip flops in summer months are easy and comfortable however they lack support and foot protection from everyday hazards.
Add a few rain showers and you can easily slip and slide into a foot injury that will surely dampen your summer fun.
However, there are better designed and more stable foot flips available that still give you the freedom of that lightweight, airy feeling.
First steps to relieve pain and promote healing
Regardless of what’s causing the pain, there are a few things you can do to reduce pain and swelling with RICE:
- Resting the foot.
- Icing the foot with covered cold packs regularly for 20 minutes at a time.
- Compressing your foot by wearing an elastic bandage.
- Elevating your foot above your heart to reduce swelling.
This method includes the following four steps:
Step 1: Rest
Pain is your body’s signal that something is wrong.
As soon as you’re hurt, stop your activity, and rest as much as possible for the first 2 days.
Don’t try to follow the “no pain, no gain” philosophy.
Doing so with certain injuries, like a moderate to a severe ankle sprain, can make the damage worse and delay your recovery.
Doctors say you should avoid putting weight on the injured area for 24 to 48 hours.
Resting also helps prevent further bruising.
Step 2: Ice
Ice is a tried-and-true tool for reducing pain and swelling.
Apply an ice pack (covered with a light, absorbent towel to help prevent frostbite) for 15-20 minutes every two to three hours during the first 24 to 48 hours after your injury.
Don’t have an ice pack?
A bag of frozen peas or corn will work just fine.
Step 3: Compression
This means wrapping the injured area to prevent swelling.
Wrap the affected area with an elastic medical bandage (like an ACE bandage).
You want it to be snug but not too tight — if it’s too tight, it’ll interrupt blood flow.
If the skin below the wrap turns blue or feels cold, numb, or tingly, loosen the bandage.
If these symptoms don’t disappear right away, seek immediate medical help.
Step 4: Elevation
This means raising the sore body part above the level of your heart.
Doing so reduces pain, throbbing, and swelling. It’s not as tricky to do as you might think.
For example, if you have an ankle sprain, you can prop your leg up on pillows while sitting on the sofa.
The CDC recommends you keep the injured area raised whenever possible, even when you’re noticing it.
Other tips for relieving pain on the outside of your foot include:
- wearing comfortable, supportive shoes. Having therapeutic/orthopedic designs will only help your feet even more
- stretching your feet and legs for at least 10 minutes before exercising
- cross-training, or switching up your exercise routine, to give your feet a break
WE, AT WWW.DTFOOTWEAR, HAVE A TON OF GOALS IN CREATING, FOR YOU. PERFECT FEET AND OUR MAIN GOAL IS ALWAYS:
One of our main goals, in life, is to see as many people as possible have “HEALTH HAPPY FEET” forever all over the world.
I still own a Medical Company (DTF CO) that handles footwear for the diabetics coast to coast, and in 18 years, we have had the pleasure of working with over 1/2 million patients.
How our, www.dtfootwear.com, the website was born by having the nurses (in over 850 facilities) asking for the same footwear and inserts for themselves as well.
The nurses heard and seen the smiles, the faces of happy clients, and the God Bless you, etc. all the time, and we have had a 98 percent satisfaction rating with our service and products.
Now, we are working on having one of the top footwear lines on the internet – dealing with widths, lengths, sizing, fitting, major support issues, up to 3 sets of Heat Customized Moldable Over the counter Inserts, and the only website that will give up to 3 sets of these inserts FREE.
Just received my 8th call this week seeking a 9E width for men and being that their 6E is just too tight.
The company that they have been getting there 6E has changed the style ( created a tighter fit) or drop the size altogether.
Go, and view the vast selection of 9E widths that we have to offer: https://dtfootwear.com/shop-2/9e-shoes/
Here the latest testimonial that always makes me feel proud:
Here’s my first reply to her
“Yes, we ship to Canada, and I need (first) the measurement of your father length in inches and width by inches and go to https://dtfootwear.com/sample-page-2-2/ and follow the video and fill out the form and email it to me.
Now go to https://dtfootwear.com/product-category/mens/extra-extra-wide-width-style/ and go to the first style of this page 728E ( I suggest this style) and this is perfect for any edema and will adjust to any swelling or ankle discomforted as well.
If he has significant swelling can you please measure the whole ball width ( a complete circle) and enter that information on the form.
Also, text me a picture of his left and right foot- especially if he has swelling (edema) in the instep or ankle.”

I can’t get over the fantastic service. If I ever meet anyone in the same predicament as me, I will let them know about your company.
I need to talk to the men out there. Is your 6E hurting your feet?
I have received three calls this week stating that problem.
A few reasons, why our 9E program, has been an unbelievable success!!!!
Oh, a note: all 3 of those men love their new 9E width shoes!!
All so what is so important about those FREE 3 sets of inserts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW97fgWCSG8
First, we are the only site on the internet that offers 3 sets FREE!!!
Second, if your feet hurt on the bottom, it is because they lack of support and this is what these heat moldable customized inserts do for your feet.
More foundation and they mold to the plantar(bottom) of your foot and creates that maximum support, balance, and comfort.
The question I get is “what does this have to do with the working environment?”
Besides this being an interesting story and you as a reader to understand the need of proper length and width for your feet to be 100 percent comfortable.
The fewer distractions and the better health, in your life, the more output and outlook you’ll have towards life and especially towards work.
Meaning that you gain a better status in your working environment, and your total daily production is not at risk.
If your shoe is too large, too tight, too heavy (in weight), no support, wow what a comfort problem!!
A SIGNIFICANT FACT,
IF YOU HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT IS MISFIT IN A PAIR OF SHOES?
Then you have an injured employee, and production is the guarantee to be at a lower rate!
Health is the number one priority for any person but especially a person who has diabetes or has foot conditions.
We also want to create the proper health for your feet, and this will occur by proper footwear and the correct inserts.
This following information, you’ll be reading, is what is needed to obtain this perfect health for your feet.
Now, if we can get you in the proper footwear!
Hopefully, you’ll allow these two items to be part of your lifestyle and what a significant change to your way of life.
These things will be working towards this success in keeping the disease out of your feet.
We, at www.dtfootwear.com, can show you the proper footwear and the need to have the proper inserts to maintain this diabetes out of your feet.
Footwear as to have fashion (that we have) but the shoe is to control upper support.
Then, off-load any problems that you have at the top of your foot.
Now, if you have problems, on the bottom of your feet?
It is the job of the properly removable insert to correct these issues.
Everybody feels that it is the shoe that solves all the problems!
For a person with diabetes or an individual who has major foot problems and that is not true.
It takes two majors elements to off-loading, corrections:
Significant added support and develops combined circulation
Which needs to keep this disease out of your feet.
All diabetic shoes need not have inside seams to create irritation.
Number one item:
Proper shoes need to be a Therapeutic/Comfort (please!), not Comfort shoes (that many diabetic suppliers furnish in this business today).
Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Insert.
Beside excellent support, added off-loading advantages, develop a better balance for walking or running.
