Are warm showers as therapeutic as hot showers because really hot showers make me feel suffocated?

Are warm showers as therapeutic as hot showers because really hot showers make me feel suffocated?

Yes: Really hot showers can actually be dangerous if you are pregnant or have blood pressure problems. They can cause your skin blood vessels to dilate to try and cool you down.

Chilly toes even when I wear warm boot! are boot warmers safe if neuropathy?

Chilly toes even when I wear warm boot! are boot warmers safe if neuropathy?

Probably not: If your neuropathy is severe, you may not feel heat well, and are at risk for burn injury. Interestingly, the sensation of cold may be related to lower foot temperature (when you reach down your foot is actually cold to touch) or your nerves misfiring a cold signal to your brain (your feet are not as cold on the outside as they feel on the inside).

Not as supportive: It is okay to wear athletic shoes without orthotics, but you will not get the same level of support for your arch. Custom orthotics conform to your arch and can help limit excessive pronation. The best combination for support is to wear custom orthotics with a stable athletic shoe. This becomes even more important if you participate in high-impact activities like running. ...Read more

What shoes should i avoid during Hip replacement recovery? Can I wear open toes slippers?

A few issues: A few things to consider: they should be comfortable, certainly; have a good "tread"along a fall unlikely; finally, it would be best if they can be put on and off easily. What I mean by that is that you don't want initially to have to bend over real far to put on or toe your shoe as there is a risk of hip dislocation peri operatively if you lean over too far at the waist. ...Read more
