Why is it so important to take care of our feet even if we feel no pain?
What are some signs we should be aware of that indicate you have a foot issue?
Are you seeing any changes in foot health during the pandemic?

Concluding Tip: Do not ignore your health during the pandemic believing it would be more dangerous to venture out to see a doctor. Medical offices are fully prepared to treat patients in a safe way so if you notice anything out of the ordinary like swelling of the feet -- particularly if you have been rather sedentary -- this can be a sign of gout, edema or some other condition that requires attention.
