restless leg syndrome new option

You crawl into bed wanting nothing more than to drift blissfully off to sleep. You fluff the pillows just right, wrap up in your favorite blanket, close your eyes, and…suddenly have an irresistible urge to move your legs. This isn’t exactly the ending you -or your partner- were hoping for. In fact, your uncontrollable urge…

The One thing regarding nerve pain in feet

I recently read a book called The One Thing. The concept was simple: with all the noise and distractions that we have in our lives it’s important to focus on that one thing that is most important. Not an easy task. Some of you may have remembered the movie City Slickers where the cowboy character…

Okay, I’m going to come right out and say it: custom orthotics, made from a mold of your foot, are better than over-the-counter arch supports. How can I say this? Because I’m neutral on the subject. You see, during normal motion while walking or running, the foot can sometimes roll too far to one side….

weight affects your feet

Your feet are a vital part of your daily activity; they are responsible for carrying your entire body around. When you suffer from foot pain, whether temporary or chronic, everyday activities suddenly—and frustratingly—become much harder to accomplish. There are many causes for foot pain, but a common culprit is your body weight. As troublesome as…

A star Notre Dame Football player, Jaylon Smith (soon to be playing professional football) has a drop foot.

Toenail fungus causes peeled, yellow tones, and breaking toenails. It can make one feel self-conscience, especially when wearing open toed shoes. People who suffer from toenail fungus often feel frustrated with the endless antifungal creams and ointments that just don’t seem to work. If this describes you, don’t worry; you are not alone and there…

Neuropathy: A Silent Killer

For many diabetics numbness comes on so slowly that they learn to adapt to it. It may be on such a slow gradient that they lose an appreciation for how good a foot with feeling really is, and if ignored for too long amputation becomes inevitable. So why is numbness a silent killer? Because the…

One of the most debilitating problems is arthritis in the ankle joint. This can be caused from overuse or just getting older (wear and tear).

Runner's Shoes - proper shoes can prevent injures, but orthotics can help heal

Sadly, jogging injuries are not uncommon. In fact, it’s very likely that you or someone you know has been benched due to a jogging injury, whether it be a shin splint, sprained ankle, leg or foot pain, or a stress fracture. With a little help and preparation, you can ensure you stay off the bench…

Neruopathy can stop you from simple tasks like walking, driving, or even staying balanced

It starts with some tingling in your feet, and maybe a little in your legs.  Then, the tingling turns into pain: sharp jabbing or stabbing sensations.
