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.
