Halloween Tips for Keeping your FEET Safe!

Halloween is a very exciting time of year: costumes, candy, treats, parties, friends! However, long costumes, masks, wigs, parties, and trick or treating in the dark can all put our feet at risk. Uneven sidewalks, dips in the pavement or yards, and crowds can cause our ankles or feet to twist and turn. While enjoying the festivities this week, it is important to wear comfortable and supportive shoes, have costumes that are not too long, take care with masks and wigs to be certain you can see clearly, and to use flashlights when it gets dark. Halloween is such a fun event, so make it safe and fun! Dr. Bender, 708-763-0580
