Regardless of your previous hiking experiences, it’s important to prepare your feet for hikes by following these tips
Your feet and ankles are made up of 33 joints in each side. It shouldn’t be surprising, then, that arthritis can greatly affect your feet.
Increasing flexibility, balance, and strength in the ankles can prevent injuries and make them more resilient when they need to recover.
Whether you’re going for the weekend or a month-long backpacking trip, there are some essentials you should prepare and pack.
As your body changes, your feet go through a lot to accommodate, especially with the increased weight from the growing baby. Feet work harder to support you and they can feel strained along the bottom and back of the feet.
The summer is a great time to be active, but as with all activity, it makes you prone to injuries to your feet and ankles.
Athlete’s foot (or tinea pedis) is a fungal disease that is highly contagious. The same fungus can infect you in other parts of the body too as ringworm or jock itch.
Flat feet can be a genetic condition or one that is acquired as an adult. Most of the time, there’s not much that can be done if it’s passed down as a hereditary trait.
Plantar warts, like all warts, are a manifestation of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). This is a virus that can be easily transmitted by direct or indirect contact with a wart.
Thickened skin that develops on the top of the toes are called corns, while thick skin on the bottom are called calluses. While not contagious or life threatening, they can be unsightly and even painful.
