Key tips for stronger, healthier, and happier feet

When your feet work like they’re supposed to, you probably don’t give them a second thought. But when they hurt, even a walk to the mailbox can be an ordeal. Healthy Feet: Preventing and treating common foot problems, a Special Health Report from Harvard Medical School, tells you everything you need to know about keeping your feet healthy, strong, and pain-free.

The report is packed with useful information to help you overcome foot pain and get back to your favorite activities as soon as possible. For example, you’ll learn:

  • How you can ease heel pain, whether it’s from plantar fasciitis, an inflamed Achilles tendon, or bursitis
  • Simple steps you can take to treat pain resulting from flat feet
  • What to look for in shoes so you can avoid painful bunions and bunionettes
  • How to avoid toenail fungus and athlete’s foot
  • The differences between corns and calluses, and how you can treat both at home

Of course, sometimes it’s necessary to seek medical attention for foot problems. Healthy Feet brings you up to date on the latest medical treatments for foot conditions, including minimally invasive surgical procedures. There’s also a comprehensive overview of the different medications available to treat foot pain.

In addition, Healthy Feet covers topics such as the special footcare needs of people with diabetes, the two most common types of nerve conditions that affect the feet, the importance of checking your feet for skin cancer, and why you should talk to your doctor if your feet are unusually cold, since that could mean you have a heart or circulatory problem.

Finally, to help you prevent foot injuries, Healthy Feet includes six illustrated exercises you can do almost anywhere to stretch and strengthen your feet, heels, and ankles.

Your life is too busy to let foot problems slow you down. With Healthy Feet, you’ll know exactly how to keep your feet in their best shape for years to come. Order your copy today!
