In today's program, Dr. Reminga talks about strategies for taking care of your feet to help insure an enjoyable hiking season. After a long winter, the weather forecast final signals the "all clear"... hikers are anxious to get moving. With this anticipation and the desire to get going, hikers can make decisions that could take a toll when it comes to their feet. Imagine this scenario... You hike 9 miles with a 30 Ib. pack on your back. You're anxious to reach your idyllic spot. In your excitement you dismiss the fact that you have to hike the same 9 miles out. As you start out, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and temperature is a perfect 65 degrees. Sounds good right? Until... your feet start to feel uncomfortable and soon, the heels on your feet become riddled with blisters. You think to yourself... "How can little blisters on my feet bring so much misery!". Your painful feet have truly tarnished the day of hiking you were looking forward to.

The good new is... there is a way to be proactive in preventing foot problems from ending an enjoyable day outdoors. Dr. Reminga talks about blisters in detail. He talks about what a blister is and how to avoid them. He distinguishes the difference between blisters and skin shears. He also tells listeners what to do to avoid getting blisters in the first place. No matter if you're a hiker or you just like to get out and walk, today's show will worthwhile. Enjoy a great hiking season without blisters!
