Going Barefoot? Beware!
Tips for a safer barefoot summer
Millions of Americans will go barefoot this summer, and thousands will suffer injuries such as cuts and puncture wounds. Some will develop nasty infections that may require surgery.
The best way to protect feet and toes from injury is to wear shoes. But if your summer just wouldn’t be the same without the sand between your toes or walking in your backyard barefoot, doctors with the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) say you can make it a safer season by following these tips.
Millions of American are going barefoot year around, and 99% of those have no injuries to their feet what so ever. I have been walking barefoot now for just about two years, and never a scratch. Others have walked with bare feet for a lot longer and never had any injury as a result.
Those Doctors are from the old school, and just do not want to change and learn new things… retire them, put them out of their misery. The tips they give are useless, and getting old.
