HELPING TO KEEP YOU ON YOUR FEET SINCE 1997!

 

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR ADDRESS HAS CHANGED!

 

We are now conveniently located in Downtown Eugene at 215 West 10th Avenue at the corner of Charnelton and 10th, across from St. Mary's Catholic Church and right near the Eugene Public Library. 

 

 

Winter is fast approaching and dry skin can be a real problem as we stay in doors. Moisture retention is key to healthy feet. Soaking is fine if it is followed up by a moisutrizer; soaking alone can dehydrate skin!

 

I recommend that patients utilize a thicker moisturizer. Lotions have a higher percentage of water than creams and butters.  My favorites are Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Cocoa Butter. These need to be rubbed in very well especially between the toes. Application after a shower or bath and before bed is best. In addition, using oral flaxseed oil is helpful in maintaining moisture in skin structures.

 

During the winter there are aslo people who experience Raynaud's Syndrome. This can present by itself or in conjunction with other disorders.  It is an issue that involves micro-vascular structures. The cold weather causes these vessels to contract and blood flow is reduced to the toes or fingers causing pain. Use of nicotine or caffeine further complicates the condition. For my patients with this condition, I ask them to reduce their caffeine intake  (Even if it is just for the winter!) and for those who smoke to work on cessation. An important factor is to maintain an even temperature of the feet and toes which can be difficult when working outside. Proper shoe gear and appropriate socks can help manage the problem. If the condition does not improve with the above suggestions or if you suspect a problem, it is best to come on in for an appointment!
