While attending a kickboxing class, Russell Brand injured his foot. He was seen walking barefoot after attending the class, in attempt to get fit. Brand didn’t seem too concerned, as he stated in an interview that “the injury was similar to a rug burn and not serious.”

Since his injury, Brand has chosen not to wear shoes stating, “Shoes are, in themselves, in oddity and addition.” Even though Brand would rather walk barefoot, it is important to seek advice about what proper foot wear you should consider. Podiatrists, like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctors of the East Bay, can care for your foot injuries and provide care for all your foot pain and related concerns.

Proper Foot Care Leads to Better Health

Long periods of standing often lead to pain and discomfort around the feet. Every day the body undergoes a series of stresses, especially during work. To minimize these stresses on your feet, better shoe choices and proper posture will significantly help.

Better Choices

A Negative Heel

  • This is where the heel is slightly lower than the ball of the foot.

Going Barefoot

  • Having your feet crammed into shoes for long periods of time increases pressure. Giving your feet some exposure to air and walking barefoot helps tremendously.

Exercise Your Feet

  • A foot workout helps correct movements and stimulates the blood flow and muscles of the feet. Implementing yoga exercises to your daily routine is a good example of this.

Foot Care

Spending a majority of the time on your feet will most likely trigger pain; even more so if you suffer from poor circulation.  Proper footwear and appropriate stretching will alleviate pain and prevent further issues. When your feet hurt, it is best to take care of them right away.
