The wrong use of shoes by citizens who care about aesthetic posture brings with it many diseases. Turkey Medicals hospital member and Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Specialist Dr. said that disease problems such as arm, foot disfigurement, bloating, edema will come first.

It was stated by the expert doctor that the selection of shoes that are good for aesthetics and eye appeal by not being checked for health brings with it health problems such as foot disfigurement, bloating, edema and warnings were given by the Turkish expert doctor.

The Dr. gave information about the disfigurement and deformed disease in the shoe, which was constantly used. Dr. “Patients who come to our department with foot and ankle pain, traumatic, sporty, sprains, and especially in the chronic process that we have often seen recently, our patients are applying for after the wrong shoe selection. This group of patients can come with pain around the feet and wrists, edema, bloating, disfigurement of the feet and fingers.

Sometimes they are referred to by burning, stinging, feeling like walking on sand. In fact, the examination of the patient begins with us from the moment we enter the door,” he said.

We recommend choosing leather especially if the preferred shoe sole is made of leather:

We are looking for if there is a gait disorder, if the joint can move comfortably, if there is a disfigurement, callus thickening of the skin redness swelling.

Sometimes it comes to us with a shoe that the patient uses for a long time, deforming, disfiguring the shoe can give us an idea of the patient’s foot disease in the chronic process. The purpose of wearing shoes is to protect against external influences. The shoe will not strain the sole of the foot, will not restrict joint movements. We usually recommend choosing leather, especially if the preferred shoe sole is made of leather.

They usually make choices with pointed ends, the finger section narrows completely towards the front due to aesthetic concerns. But these shoes are used in the chronic process with many foot diseases,” he said.

Pay attention to the use of seasonal shoes:

Dr. who makes suggestions about seasonal transitions He added, “Shoe choices also change with the passage of the seasons. Summer periods are a long-lasting hot period, shoes with a ventilated and flexible outer surface of the shoe may be preferred. It should be preferred that the boots that are preferred in the winter period are not too hard, have a high conch, the sole is not flexible and slippery,” he said.
