Wishing You Happy and Healthy Feet This Holiday Season

As the holiday season unfolds, it's essential to take a moment to care for the often-neglected heroes of our mobility – our feet! Winter can bring its own set of challenges for foot health, and Drs. Ryan and Shaynah Goldfine have a few tips to keep your feet happy and healthy during this season.

  1. Keep Your Feet Warm and Dry: Cold weather can lead to issues like frostbite and dry skin. Ensure your feet stay warm by wearing insulated, moisture-wicking socks and well-insulated footwear. If your feet get wet, dry them thoroughly to prevent issues like fungal infections.
  2. Moisturize Regularly: Cold air can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and cracking. Apply a rich, hydrating moisturizer to keep your feet soft and supple, paying extra attention to areas prone to dryness.
  3. Choose the Right Footwear: Opt for shoes that provide both warmth and support. Make sure they are the right size and offer proper arch support to avoid discomfort and potential issues like plantar fasciitis.

 Dealing with Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis:

If you're struggling with heel pain or plantar fasciitis, the holiday season is an excellent time to take proactive steps toward relief.

  1. Stretch Regularly: Perform gentle stretches for your calves, Achilles tendon, and the plantar fascia. Simple exercises can alleviate tension and reduce the risk of plantar fasciitis flare-ups.
  2. Supportive Shoes: Invest in shoes with good arch support and cushioning. Avoid walking barefoot on hard surfaces, especially in the colder months when the ground may be colder and less forgiving.
  3. Ice and Rest: If you're experiencing heel pain, applying ice to the affected area can help reduce inflammation. Additionally, giving your feet adequate rest is crucial for recovery.
  4. Consult with Your Podiatrist: If heel pain persists or worsens, don't hesitate to reach out to Drs. Ryan and Shaynah Goldfine. Professional guidance can provide personalized solutions to address your specific concerns.


As we bid farewell to this year and welcome the new one with open arms, let's prioritize self-care, including the well-being of our feet. Drs. Ryan and Shaynah Goldfine are here to support you on your journey to happy and healthy feet!


Wishing you a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year!
