Are you a woman that enjoys wearing that impractical set of shoes from time to time? After a night out of fashion and fun, you feet can pay the price. High heels cause the foot to push forward in to the toe box. Many times this pressure to the ball of the foot can cause pain that can last for days. This pressure can aggravate calluses, corns, bunions and neuromas. You can get relief by wearing a FootRestore while you sleep. Never use over-the-counter corn and callus removers, as they burn and damage the skin. Seek podiatric treatment to correct the bone deformity as soon as possible.

Many bunions can be treated by switching to shoes that fit properly and that don’t squash the toes, the AAOS says. Most bunions do not need to be corrected with surgery, particularly if they are not causing pain. A foot specialist can help you determine the best treatment for your bunion and what type of shoe would be best for your foot. If you are a diabetic you are fifteen times more likely to have a limb amputated or suffer with leg and foot ulcers. However the risk of complication is significantly reduced if your blood sugar levels, blood pressure and cholesterol are properly monitored and controlled.
Will my bunion come back after surgery?” is a popular question from patients. In most cases, the surgery outcome will be maintained in the long term. However, recurrence is possible. Certain foot types, such as those with (excessive motion of the foot joints), might be prone to recurrence. These patients should pay closer attention to shoe choices and consider using orthotics after surgery. Sometimes, the condition recurs because an incorrect procedure was performed. In those cases, a less than ideal procedure might have been chosen in exchange for a shorter recuperation.
It was my first class with Donald Moyer in the new year, January having flown by and February upon us. I checked in with him before class began and mentioned an unusual aching in the lateral aspect of my left foot that I had been experiencing for about two months. It was not bad enough from preventing me from my normal activities, but I noticed it when turning my left foot out to 90 degrees for many of my standing poses. He gave me some pointers for the day’s practice, and then class began.
