Happy 4th of July!


Tips for foot health on 4th of July:

  • Wear closed toe shoes or sandals that protect the entire foot when near fireworks.
  • Be careful on grass at night.  Holes or divots could result in an ankle sprain.
  • Watch out for fire pits.  Walking over an unlit fire pit could still have hot embers underneath, which may cause significant injury to a foot.
  • Although you'd think sparklers are the safest firework, they actually burn at 2,000 degrees – hot enough to melt some metals!  Beware of stepping on a dropped sparkler. Hose them off before trying to pick them up, as it can be hard to know which end is which.

Be safe out there.  - Redmond Foot & Ankle

Trilogy Health Fair

On June 9th my staff and I were at the beautiful Trilogy at Redmond Ridge, helping with their Health Fair.  Trilogy is a an active 55 plus adult community just minutes from downtown Redmond.  The serene landscape with its Oki 18-hole Championship Golf Course, Junior Olympic pool, and spectacular clubhouse makes the heart leap and step soften.

We met so many amazing active people at Trilogy - great energy!  It was also great to meet some of the other healthcare resources of the Redmond community.
