Attention, residents of South Louisiana! April is a special time of the year, and we’re thrilled to invite you to join us in celebrating National Foot Health Awareness Month at the SLMA Comprehensive Health Clinic. As healthcare providers, we understand the vital role our feet play in our overall well-being. Yet, these hardworking appendages are often one of the most neglected parts of our anatomy. That’s why the American Podiatric Medical Association (A.P.M.A.) has dedicated this month to raising critical awareness about the importance of foot health. At SLMA Comprehensive Health Clinic, our expert podiatrists, Dr. Adam Ziegenbusch and Dr. Andrea Leonards, are passionate about helping our community take proactive steps to ensure the long-term health and well-being of their feet. With locations in Morgan City (985-385-2616) and Houma (985-868-4890), we’re here to provide the comprehensive care and support you need to keep your feet in top shape.

The Unsung Heroes of Our Body

Our feet are the unsung heroes of our body, enabling us to explore the world, stand tall, and maintain our independence. From standing and walking to running and jumping, our feet bear the brunt of our daily activities, often without receiving the care and attention they deserve. Poor foot health can lead to a range of issues, from painful conditions like plantar fasciitis and bunions to more serious problems like diabetes-related complications. Neglecting our feet can also have a ripple effect on our overall physical and mental well-being, impacting our mobility, posture, and even our mood.

Prioritizing Foot Health at SLMA Comprehensive Health Clinic

During this National Foot Health Awareness Month, we encourage you to join us in celebrating and prioritizing the health of your feet. Here are some ways you can get involved:

  2. Invest in Good Shoes: Wearing well-fitted, supportive shoes can make a significant difference in the health of your feet. Our team can provide personalized recommendations to ensure you find the right shoes for your individual needs.
  3. Learn About Foot Care: Join us for a special educational event where our experts will share tips and techniques for maintaining optimal foot health, from proper hygiene to exercises and more.
