Feet Can be Windows to Overall Health

While our eyes are believed to be the windows to our souls, could our feet be the windows to our overall health? “The foot is a complicated body part, but something we often take for granted,” said Daniel Michaels, DPM, a podiatrist at Banner Health Center. “While we usually don’t get concerned about our feet until we’ve bruised, sprained, or broken something, our feet can tell us a great deal about our overall health.”

 

Dr. Michaels has this sage advice: “Look, common things are common, and rare things are rare,” he said. “The likelihood is that you are perfectly fine. Most likely your symptoms are benign, but it is important to be aware of anything that could be an underlying health condition.”
