Autumn is my favorite time of year. The weather gets brisk, the leaves change colors, and pumpkin and apple flavors are all over. One of my favorite autumn activities is apple picking. Apple picking can cause many hazards to your feet.

Things to be caution of while apple picking…

– Don’t wear sandals. If you wear sandals, dirt, rocks, and other sharp objects can slide under them and cut your foot. You can also get a splinter stuck in your foot which can cause an infection.
-Wear supportive shoes, such as sneakers. Apple orchards usually have uneven surfaces. This will put you at risk of twisting an ankle.
– Don’t climb the trees. Most orchards enforce this rule, but not everyone listens. If you climb a tree you can fall. When you fall the most common bone broke is your heel bone. These breaks can require surgery and a lengthy recovery.

Bad ankle sprains can result in severe swelling and bruising.

Dr. DelRegno’s Favorite Apple Pie Recipe

Use a 9 inch pie crust
For the filling, cut 9-10 large Cortland apples or apples of your choice into slices. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 tablespoon cinammon
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1.5 sticks of butter-soft
1 egg mixed with some salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts preferred)
Mix the topping well and pour over the apples. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Although desserts such as apple pie and apple crisp are delicious, if you have Diabetes, please eat these in moderation and be aware of your blood sugar!  If you have a furry friend, I suggest a visit to Wright’s Farm in Gardiner, NY where they are dog friendly.
Have a happy and healthy autumn, but if you are having foot pain, call Hollowbrook Foot Specialists at (845) 298-9074 for an appointment. We are serving the Hudson Valley from Wappingers Falls.
