Why I Never Did Hard Drugs
“Drugs are a waste of time. They destroy your memory and your self-respect and everything that goes along with your self-esteem.” – Kurt Cobain I grew up in a close-knit, fairly religious family where children were seen and not heard, where mealtime meant everyone sat down together and exchanged pleasantries while enjoying the prepared-at-home repasts, complete with dessert.

What Type of Conservative Treatments Can Help for Plantar Fasciitis?
Discussion The plantar fascia consists of 3 bands of dense connective tissue that originates in the medical calcaneal tubercle and inserts into the base of each of the 5 proximal phalyanxes in a fan-shaped distribution.

The -itis in plantar fasciitis (PF) is a misnomer as it is not an acute inflammation but is a chronic degenerative process involving the plantar fascia aponeurosis of the foot usually at the medial tubercle of the calcaneous. Repetitive strain seems to cause microtearing which then causes a repa...
