How flip flops can affect your foot health
Although the first day of spring doesn’t officially start until March 20, you might be looking forward to shedding your winter clothing in exchange for t-shirts, shorts, and flip flops. Flip flops are the go-to spring and summer shoes for many Americans because they allow your feet to breathe in hot temperatures, and are convenient for slipping on when you feel like stepping outside or leaving the house. However, flip flops can actually have a negative impact on your foot health, especially if you wear them in place of regular shoes.
When is bunion surgery required?
For patients with bunions that don’t respond well to conservative treatments, bunion surgery may be required. The particular approach used by your podiatrist during your bunion surgery will depend on several factors, including the severity of the bunion, your overall health, and your activity level. Age and chronic health conditions may not prevent you from undergoing bunion surgery, but they are important considerations when planning your procedure.
