Harvard Health Letter Special Section Features the Body's Unsung Marvels: The Feet
Date:8/6/2009

A special four-page section in the August 2009 Harvard Health Letter focuses on the feet and their common ailments. Dr. James Ioli, chief of podiatry at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, served as guest editor.

Boston (Vocus) August 6, 2009 -- We ask a lot of our feet. They provide a steady base when we stand, serve as shock absorbers when we move, and help propel us forward -- and sometimes backward -- when we walk or run. It's no wonder that so many people develop foot-related problems.

A special four-page section in the August 2009 Harvard Health Letter focuses on the feet and their common ailments. Dr. James Ioli, chief of podiatry at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, served as guest editor.

In the special section, Dr. Ioli and the editors of the Harvard Health Letter cover these topics and questions:

 
  • Three steps to healthier feet
  • Causes and treatments of four common foot problems: bunions, metatarsalgia, plantar fasciitis, and posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. An animation of these conditions is available at Health.Harvard.edu/4foot.
  • Products for the agonies of the feet: Do toe exercisers restore foot health, as they claim? How should you choose an orthotic? Do detoxifying foot pads do anything? And more.
  • How bad are flip-flops? (Short answer: very bad when worn often.)
  • Should I get a second bunion operation?
  • Why would switching from heels to flats cause pain?

Also in this issue:

 
  • All about shellfish
  • Acetaminophen overdose
