Pregnant women can experience heel pain such as in plantar fasciitis, reduced sensitivity in the feet and ankles due to swelling, and ankle strain (Achilles Tendonitis).
If you are a gym or community pool members, you may be susceptible to contagious bacterial, fungal, or viral diseases like Plantar Warts or Athlete’s Foot.
Our feet do so much for us each day keeping us stable and mobile. Shouldn’t we give them the respect of exercising, stretching, and strengthening to keep them healthy and injury-free?
If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, you know that it is an uncomfortable chronic pain. The first steps out of bed can cause pain along the bottom of the foot, including pain at the base of the heel.
Sometimes, injuries to the feet, ankle, or legs can keep you inactive for several weeks, or even months. Depending on the injury, going to the gym may not even be an option! However, we cannot stress the importance of staying somewhat active (as much as is recommended by your podiatrist and primary care physician) to maintain overall health.

It can even cause the toenail to become brittle and even crack. You may have tried all the topical creams, with not much luck, since the fungus seems to keep coming back and your toenails stay discolored. So what’s your other option?
