National Foot Health Awareness Month

Is it April already?  It must be, because as you’ve probably heard, this is National Foot Health Awareness Month, the month in which we become aware of our foot health.  And what exactly does that mean?  I’m not entirely sure.  I do know, through years of treating patients in the mean streets of my NYC podiatry office, that there is much that the public needs to be made aware.  Here are a few tips that I have learned, some from solid, evidence based peer reviewed studies, and some from the streets of midtown Manhattan.

Anyway, those are just a few pearls I have gleaned over the years in my NYC podiatry office, from experience, other podiatrists, and my patients.  This is a perfect time to take advantage of all the benefits National Foot Health Awareness Month has to offer.

See you in the office.

Ok kids time for a little word association. Tell me the first thing you think of when I say - plantar fasciitis. If it starts with an F no need to articulate the sentiment, but you might want to read on.

Shocking, yet not surprising, the year is coming to a close and it’s already time to shop bargains on turkey and squash.

Why You Should Call Your Podiatrist (even after hours)

It’s relatively late at night in the city as I write this, and many of my dear Manhattan podiatry patients may be wondering what it is I’m doing at this late hour, other than filling the annals of this most holy and sacred blog with more consecrated verbia

Heal Thyself

Summer’s over now kids, although if you’re like me summer is just winter with heat. Still, I do get a little pit in my stomach as Labor Day looms large on the calendar and the waning days of summer transform into the crisp breezes of autumn, and other line
