My name is Aubrey, I will be attending Augustana College in the fall of 2017. At Augustana, I will be studying pre-medicine. My ultimate goal is to become a pediatric craniofacial plastic surgeon and help correct craniofacial anomalies. I have applied for this scholarship because I am really interested in health in general. Usually scholarships are boring to apply for but this is a fun opportunity since this requires research on the foot and how the smallest things can help you stay healthy.
According to the New York Times, "About 75% of people in the United States have foot pain at some time in their lives." The foot is comprised of 26 bones and 33 joints. From experience, foot pain is awful. As an athlete, I am always on my toes and it takes a toll on your feet throughout practices and games. For example, I play volleyball and one time I went up to hit the ball and when I landed, it felt like pure agony. I thought that my foot was bleeding but it was just a callus but it felt worse. People today would just keep continuing throughout their day but that is the worst thing you can do because foot pain is not normal. An estimated 120,000 job-related foot injuries occur every year. So, how do you prevent foot pain? In my opinion, eating healthy is a key part of healthy feet. If you are obese, you are adding pressure and stress on the ankles and feet. Consequently, obesity could result in plantar fasciitis. Foot creams could help maintain skin softness. You should read more reviews about the foot creams at https://www.footcreamreviews.com . Some remedies can help remove dead skin. The smallest things like wearing different shoes every now and then. Also, taking a warm footbath for just 10 minutes two or three times a week can help feet relax and help prevent mild foot pain. Healthy feet is an attainable goal by the smallest measures. Trimming toenails can prevent an ingrown toenail. Wearing poorly fitting shoes are a frequent cause of foot pain. High-heeled shoes concentrate pressure on the toes and can aggravate them. This tip goes out especially to the females who wear heels just because they look good with their outfit. This tip could also go out to all the athletes that want the newest and coolest type of shoe. Shoes purchased for sports should be specifically designed for a person's preferred sport. For instance, a running shoe should especially cushion the forefoot, while tennis shoes should emphasize ankle support. Tying your shoes can also be important.The way shoes are laced can be important for preventing specific problems. Laces should be loosened before putting shoes on. I am guilty of not tying my shoes and not looseing my laces before putting my shoes on, so I will have to make changes to my shoe tying etiquette.
In conclusion, I did not know how the littlest tips can help your feet stay healthy. Even the smallest precautions can thwart terminal foot pain. From this point on, I will take these precautions to keep my feet healthy because if you want healthy feet you need to keep them neat.
