We rely on our feet to carry us throughout life, every day. What should we do to keep them from complaining?
Taking Care of Your Feet:
Podiatrist Georgeanne Botek explains how to manage warts, bunions, hammertoes and other common foot problems. Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. What causes it, and how can you treat it properly?
How should you deal with ingrown toenails? What can you do about nail fungus?
Learn how you can protect your feet from blisters and what you should do if you sprain an ankle.
Some people are born with flat feet, while others see their arches sag over time. But everyone can take care of them.
The best treatment may be an orthotic insole. Does it need to be customized (pricey) or will a less expensive OTC orthotic work just as well?
