Dr. Salvino's Plantar Fasciitis Kit by Everheel
Painful heels are one of the top concerns that bring people into the offices of their family doctors, as well as the main concern bringing people to the offices of podiatric doctors. Heel pain can have a number of causes, although the vast majority is caused by plantar fasciitis. 'Plantar,' means, 'bottom of the foot.' 'Fascia,' is a ligament or bundle of ligaments. The plantar fascia is a thick ligament that helps people to hold up their foot and provide, 'spring,' to their steps. (Source: Disabled World)

Student nurses work full-time hours in placement for around half the year,...
