Feel Good Feet

Your feet take a lot of daily abuse so naturally they’re subject to all kinds of problems, especially if you’re a woman.

A study conducted by The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society found that nine out of ten women wear shoes that are too small for their feet and that women are nine times more likely to develop a foot problem than a man because of improper fitting shoes.

To get a better perspective on how women can avoid foot problems, we sought some practical advice from Dr. Ivelisse Rosa, podiatrist at Tri-County Foot & Ankle.

Stepping Up To The Plate

Every April special attention is given to foot health as we observe National Foot Health Awareness Month.

Nearly eight out of ten Americans say they have experienced some sort of foot pain and half of them admit that foot pain has restricted their activities in some way, according to data from the American Podiatric Medical Association.

Those statistics hit a little too close to home for Teresa Wickers, whose worsening heel pain finally stopped her in her tracks. She sought help from Tri-County Foot & Ankle where Dr. Daniel Wassell recommended surgery to relieve the pain from plantar fasciitis.
