What Is a Sprained Ankle?
(https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/sprained-ankle/symptoms-causes/syc-20353225)

A sprained ankle is a common sports-related injury that occurs when you roll, twist, or step down on your ankle in an awkward way. Your ankle joint is surrounded by ligaments. If these ligaments become stretched or overextended, it leads to bruising, swelling, and general immobility. Minor sprains can be treated using conservative measures of care, but more severe sprains may require physical therapy or even surgical intervention.

How Can I Prevent an Ingrown Toenail?
(https://orthoinfo.aaos.org/en/diseases--conditions/ingrown-toenail)

Unfortunately, there's no way to prevent ingrown toenails entirely. However, there are steps you can take to lower your risk significantly. For example, you should always try and trim your toenails straight across instead of tapering the corners. You should also wear comfortable socks and shoes that have plenty of room for your toes to wiggle around and breathe.

What Is the RICE Protocol?
(https://www.webmd.com/first-aid/rice-method-injuries)

The RICE protocol is a conservative method of treatment for bumps, bruises, and other mild, sports-related injuries. RICE stands for rest, ice, compression, elevation. If you twist your ankle or stub your toe, the RICE protocol may be able to reduce swelling and relieve pain. However, if your symptoms persist or get worse over the course of 24-48 hours, it's important to seek professional medical help.

Why Should I Drink Water?
(https://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/drinking/nutrition/index.html)

The human body is approximately 60% water. Therefore, it's critically important you stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water doesn't just quench your thirst, either.

Water helps your body:
Regulate temperature
Lubricate and cushion your joints
Protect your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues
Eradicate waste

Try and challenge yourself to drink 8, 8-ounce glasses of water every day. Your body will thank you!

Day-to-day life is hectic and stressful. If you regularly find yourself feeling anxious or depressed, consider adding more physical activity into your routine. Clinical studies show that exercise increases brain sensitivity to hormones like serotonin. Exercise also releases endorphins throughout your body, which are known to increase positive feelings and relieve pain. What's your favorite way to exercise? Let us know in the comments below!

Heel Spurs: Causes and Risk Factors
(http://ow.ly/NiDC30oZUu0)

Heel spurs, a condition where a calcium deposit grows between the heel and arch of the foot, can occur independently or may be related to an underlying condition. The condition happens when long-term muscle and ligament strain wear out the soft tissues in the heel, as well as when the membrane that covers the heel bone is torn. Some of the main risk factors for heel spurs include getting older, being female, being overweight, trauma to the heel, wearing improper footwear, and participating in athletic activities, especially running or jumping on hard surfaces.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?
(http://ow.ly/x3II30oZUtY)

Are you or a loved one dealing with stabbing pain in your heel? This may be due to plantar fasciitis, a common condition that occurs when the plantar fascia ligament in your foot becomes inflamed. This pain can make it difficult to walk on hard surfaces and is usually worse after long periods of sitting, standing, or first thing in the morning. If you have plantar fasciitis, you might also notice that your soles are stiff, tender, swollen, or warm.

(http://ow.ly/fQSx30oZUtV)

Are you wondering if you suffered a sprained ankle? Some of the common symptoms you may be experiencing include swelling, bruising or skin discoloration, tenderness or pain, and reduced range of motion or stiffness. You might also notice that your ankle is less stable, meaning these symptoms get worse when you put weight on your ankle or touch it. If you’re dealing with a sprained ankle, you should seek treatment, as they can lead to reinjury, arthritis, chronic pain, and instability.

How to Prevent Foot and Ankle Injuries
(http://ow.ly/YyQN30oZUtT)

Foot and ankle injuries are common in athletes and people who exercise often, especially if you’re a runner. To decrease your risk of injury, it’s important that you warm up before exercising, meaning you lightly stretch and jog for a few minutes. It’s also important that you condition your muscles for your sport or exercise routine, gradually increasing your activity over a period of weeks to build strength and mobility.

Athlete’s Foot Symptoms and Causes
(http://ow.ly/M90E30oZUtP)

A fungal infection that usually begins between the toes, athlete’s foot commonly occurs in people who sweat a lot while wearing tight shoes. Common athlete’s foot symptoms include a scaly red rash, itching after you take off your shoes and socks, and blisters or ulcers. Damp socks and shoes and warm, humid conditions are known to cause the fungus, which is contagious and can be spread through contact with an infected person or contaminated surfaces such as floors, shoes, and towels.

How Peripheral Neuropathy is Treated by a Foot Specialist
(http://ow.ly/4HLP30oZUtJ)

A problem affecting the nerves of the peripheral nervous system, peripheral neuropathy, can cause several painful and uncomfortable symptoms, including hypersensitivity, numbness, and loss of coordination. Furthermore, when left untreated, it can lead to foot infections, ulcers, and gangrene. Treatment for peripheral neuropathy starts with managing your blood sugars if you have diabetes, as well as proper foot care and daily inspections. Your doctor might also determine oral and topical medications are necessary for your treatment plan.

How to Know if You Need Orthotics
(http://ow.ly/siHK30oZUtG)

If you’re experiencing foot pain due to conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, a pinched nerve, or heel pain, you may need orthotics. Your doctor might recommend foot orthotics if your muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, or bones are not in an optimal functional position and are causing you pain, discomfort, and fatigue. Before investing in orthotics, you should buy properly fitted shoes specific for your work or athletic activities, as this could provide you with the relief you’re seeking!

#orthotics #footpain #plantarfasciitis

While many common foot conditions can be helped with a pair of orthotic shoe inserts, they are not the solution for every problem, and there are different types of orthotics for different applications. But before investing in orthotics, you may want to consider a new pair of shoes.

What to Know About Posterior Tibial Tendonitis
(http://ow.ly/wD7Q30oZUtD)

One of the most common problems affecting the foot or ankle, posterior tibial tendonitis occurs when the posterior tibial tendon becomes inflamed or torn. When this occurs, your tendon is unable to provide stability and support for the arch of the foot, resulting in flatfoot. Most cases of posterior tibial tendonitis do not require surgery, as patients can find relief through orthotics and braces. If you’re experiencing pain along the inside of the foot and ankle that gets worse with activity, you should seek a diagnosis.

What Causes an Ingrown Toenail?
(http://ow.ly/DQIV30oZUtA)

Ingrown toenails occur when your toenail grows into the skin of your toe. This usually affects the big toe, but can affect any toe on your foot. While it’s usually caused by improper trimming of the nail, you can experience an ingrown toenail if you suffer trauma to your toe, your nail is too large for your toe, you wear shoes that are too tight, or you have fungal nails.

How Plantar Warts are Diagnosed and Treated
(http://ow.ly/iOIl30oZUtx)

Plantar warts can be painful and discomforting when left untreated. While they sometimes recede without treatment, they often appear on weight-bearing areas of your feet like your heels, meaning they cause pain and discomfort whenever you’re walking or standing. A visual diagnosis is necessary for treatment, which can be difficult since a viral infection causes warts. Your doctor may recommend acid applications, cryotherapy, or laser treatment to get rid of your plantar warts. In some cases, minor office surgery is required.

How to Tell if You Have Flat Feet
(http://ow.ly/KOHm30oZUtv)

Does the entire sole of your foot touch the floor while you’re standing? You have flat feet, also known as flatfoot. When your feet are flat, this can lead to other health problems, as your arch is not properly distributing your body weight across your feet and legs. This strains your ligaments and muscles, leading to hammertoe, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, bunions, Achilles tendonitis, and more.

Symptoms of an Ingrown Toenail
(http://ow.ly/mLhq30oR7og)

Ingrown toenails are uncomfortable, to say the least. This painful condition usually affects the big toe, but can affect any toe on your foot, causing swelling and leading to infection. Additional symptoms to watch for include redness along the corner or side of the nail. Once infection sets in, you may notice small amounts of pus in the affected area. As soon as you notice that your nail is growing into your skin, you should take action, as home care can often correct the issue.

Plantar Warts: Causes and Risk Factors
(http://ow.ly/T2aI30oR7od)

Do you have plantar warts? You may be wondering what caused you to get this painful and uncomfortable foot condition. Plantar warts are caused when the human papillomavirus (HPV) enters your body through your feet. You might pick this up at communal areas such as public pools and locker rooms, as the virus thrives in damp, warm places. Your risk of developing plantar warts increases if you have a history of plantar warts or a weakened immune system. The condition is also more likely to affect children and teenagers between 12 and 16 years of age.
