It is hard to feel good if your feet hurt. Dancing, running, playing golf or tennis and many other forms of recreation are no fun if you have painful bunions or plantar fasciitis. So how can you keep your feet happy and healthy? And what can you do about common foot problems?
Ask the Podiatrist:
Our guest, Dr. Jane Andersen, can tell you what the most common foot problems are and how we can avoid them. How should you select shoes that will be good for your feet? Are there special considerations if you have a particular foot condition? Learn about hammertoes, bunions, corns and calluses as well as toenail fungus and athlete’s foot. You’ll also find out how to care for temporary setbacks such as sprains and strains and how chronic conditions such as diabetes or psoriasis can affect the feet.
Your Calls Are Welcome:
If you have a question about how to keep your feet happy and healthy, tune in Saturday, March 10, 2018, from 7 to 8 AM EST. You can call 1-888-472-3366. You can also reach us through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Twitter @peoplespharmacy.
