Let's Talk About Your Feet

Let’s hear it for our “gnarly” friends. I am speaking of course about our feet.

We often hear about our aching backs or other part of our bodies, but publicly talking about your feet is often not fashionable.

It has been said that “when you are smiling, the whole world smiles with you.” I don’t know when that was written, but it goes along with Socrates when he said, “When our feet hurt we hurt all over.” It’s hard to smile when every step you take causes pain.

HEALTH CONDITIONS OF YOUR FEET YOU SHOULD LOOK TO

Feet are the most used and less cared part of the body. It’s very sad that the feet are usually neglected by our daily beauty regime. They carry the all of your body weight and keep going most of the time of the day.

Each foot contains 33 joints, 100 tendons, muscles, 5 nails, a large part of the skin, and ligaments; and a countless nerves and blood vessels that link all the way to the heart, spine, and brain and they can work in rigorous ways all the time.

Foot Pain affects the whole body

We make feet feel better so your whole body feels good too.

Compression Socks Prevent Clots in Athletes Who Travel

Research has established that strenuous exercise, such as marathon running, activates clot formation by increasing markers of coagulation. In response, clot breakdown activates in coordination with the coagulatory system following exercise. This phenomenon where in healthy athletes, post exercise clot breakdown is approximately equal to clot formation, is termed homeostatic activation.

While exercise induced homeostatic activation is not harmful for most individuals, marathon running and other strenuous exercise may disproportionately activate the coagulatory system, increasing the risk for venous thrombosis (VTE) and contributing to reports of Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT), Pulmonary Embolism (PE) or both. This is of increasing concer...

How Should Men Keep their Feet Healthy?

Men usually don’t care about their personal hygiene as women do. They are against the idea of keeping themselves clean. They even stand under the shower and just put shampoo on their head and let the shampoo clean the rest of the body. We are not making these things up but this is true according to the survey conducted. Men care most about their face and less about their feet.
