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)

Fighting for the future of nursing
Yesterday hundreds of student nurses protested outside the Department of Health in Westminster, against proposed cuts to nursing bursaries. The young nurses and midwives were out in force because in his autumn statement George Osborne set out plans to cut the NHS bursary from 2017. The move will mean thousands of student nurses, midwives, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, podiatrists, radiographers, dietetics, operating department practitioners and possibly paramedics will be over £50,000 in debt when they graduate. Student nurses work full-time hours in placement for around half the year,...

For example, we weren’t able to find the words "ambulance" or "EMS" in them anywhere, at least as of the drafting of this article.

Good Ways To Exercise & Care For Your Most Neglected Body Part
By Dorene Internicola NEW YORK, March 30 (Reuters) - Feet are a part of the anatomy many exercisers ignore while pounding the treadmill or honing a headstand, but fitness experts say they are the very foundation of physical well-being. A quarter of the body's bones are contained in the feet and ankles. It is where most movement begins and, much like a building's foundation, it determines stability. "The feet are perhaps the most neglected complex structure in the body," said Katy Bowman, biomechanist and the author of "Whole Body Barefoot: Transitioning Well to Minimal Footwear." ...

When Do Feet Have Arches?
Discussion Pes planus or flat foot is a common presentation in children and is defined as the absent or diminished longitudinal medial foot arch.

Some parents of older children will become concerned when they notice excessive or abnormal shoe wear. The differential diagnosis in rare cases also includes rheumatologic, neurologic, neoplastic and genetic syndromes such as Ehler-Danlos and Marfan syndrome. The different...
