In today's program, Dr. Reminga talks about holiday-related foot issues. The month of December is a busy month for many people and... the holidays place extra demands on our feet. It’s a wonderful time of year to get together with family and friends you haven’t seen in awhile. Along with that... comes hectic shopping, holiday baking and cooking, long hours on your feet, and... more activity in general. With all this activity, our feet can take a beating. In addition to wear and tear… our feet are exposed to the cold weather conditions as well... causing feet to become cold, numb, and sometimes painful from the plunging temperatures. So, the question today is… How will your feet survive this holiday season?

So, where do you start? Dr. Reminga says, "The first thing to consider is... What are you wearing on your feet?" Before a busy day of holiday preparation, choose your shoes as if you were going to go out to exercise. You wouldn’t wear ballet flats or high heels to go running for example. Without footwear and adequate support ... a whole host of problems that start with foot pain and can lead to pain in the knees, hips, back, and even your head or neck. Dr. Reminga emphasizes that it's not only the shoe you choose but what's INSIDE your shoe may be more important than the shoe itself. He talks about plantar fasciitis, neuromas, arch and heel pain, shin splints, and Achilles tendonitis during this busy time of year. If you are going to be busy this holiday season, Dr. Reminga has some helpful advice so you can avoid the pain and inconvenience of foot pain.
