I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!
I was so happy the weather cooperated and we had such a beautiful fall night.
With this weeks forecast, it looks like we will be having at least one more fall week before we start heading back down in to those chilly days. Let’s face it, our evenings for the next few months are bound to get colder.
So in preparation of those chilly evenings, I wanted to talk about one thing I find vital to have … warm slippers.
What’s more comforting then walking in the door, sliding off your shoes and slipping into some fuzz slippers? IT’S LIKE A WARM HUG FOR YOUR FEET!
Another huge benefit of house slippers would be the constant support your providing for your feet. Some common foot problems that benefit from a house slipper would be Plantar Fasciitis, Mortons Neuromas, Fat Pad Atrophy and more.
So if you find yourself needing to get some supportive slippers for this upcoming winter, be sure to ask your Mid Plains Podiatry staff for some of our options at your next appointment!

What do you know about your insurance plan?
Before going to see a new Physician, do you check with insurance before you go to your appointment?
One thing I never knew to check into or think about when setting up an appointment at a new Doctors office was my insurance and whether or not I could go to that Doctor in the first place. Did you know that your insurance company can also give you an idea of how much they will pay for any procedure you are contemplating?
So before going to a new Doctor, here are a few questions to ask your insurance company that will help eliminate any surprises on your bill.
First, call your insurance company to ensure the new Doctor you will be seeing is in network with your plan. If not, check to see if you have any out-of-network benefits.
Next, ask where you are on your deductible. This way you will know if you will be financially responsible for the whole bill or if insurance will be paying a portion.
There is a phone number on the back of your card that you can use to contact your customer service department to get answers to any of your questions.
So the next time you make an appointment with a new Provider, pull out your insurance card and give these few tips a try and feel more prepared when that bill comes!
With everything going on in the world this summer, we find ourselves spending more time doing outdoor activities. Well after so much activity on a hot summer day, my body is exhausted and my muscles ache. So as I lay in my air conditioned apartment after a long active day, what can I put on my aches and pains to help my muscles relax?
For temporary relief from minor aches and pains of sore muscles and joints associated with: arthritis pain, backache, strains, sprains, give our new Hempnesic pain relieving gel a try.
Hempnesic Gel is the only FDA registered topical pain-relieving gel that directly influences the endocannabinoid system with Hemp-derived cannabidiol containing Capsaicin, Menthol, and Camphor. Numerous studies have demonstrated that mammalian tissue contains at least two cannabinoid (CB) receptors, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are shown to mediate analgesia in animal studies. Human studies are ongoing and preliminary data clearly show that pain is reduced using hemp-based cannabidiol when taken orally or when applied topically.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- Goes on cool and progressively heats
- Infused with Capsaicin, Hemp Oil, Ilex, and Green Tea
- Paraben-free formulation
- Light, oil-free formula absorbs into the skin rapidly
- Longer lasting formula. One application offers relief for up to 4-6 hours
- Provides fast relief from sore muscles
Looking for an excuse to get off your feet? How about something relaxing to do after a long day?
Soaking your feet and/or body in warm water mixed with our Salt Soothers Bath Salts is a great way to unwind as well as take care of your skin’s health.
Soaking is an excellent stress reducer.
Ancient Greeks and Romans both used warm seawater as a therapy to help them relax. This is now called talassotherapy, a word derived from the old Greek word thalassa, which means sea. According to Health-Benefit-of-Water.com, sea salt bath therapy provides psychological benefits and improves quality of sleep.
Sea salts provide a natural detoxifier.
Sea salt is a natural detoxifier, as the salt absorbs the toxins from the skin. Soaking in sea salts for 15 minutes will help release toxins that build up in the tissue and relieve sore muscles as well as replace minerals that you lose every day.
Increased circulation, antiseptic effects, soft skin without a greasy feel and reduction in fluid retention are just some of the additional benefits of sea salt for the skin. Since sea salt does not go through the same manufacturing processes as table salt, the minerals from the sea remain, giving sea salts different colorings depending on where they are from. Many of these minerals also provide nutrients and benefits to the skin.
If you or someone you know are interested in trying these Salt Soothers Bath Salts, come by our office today!
