My name is Melinda Johnson and I suffered with foot pain for many years. I went to see a podiatrist and after an examination, I was told that I had heel spur syndrome. I followed the recommendations of my doctor by doing at home treatments along with physical therapy. I was amazed at how much these treatments helped my foot pain. Living with pain can have a big impact on your life and that's why I started this blog. My foot pain kept me from doing many things that I enjoy and I want to help others who are going through the same situation. As you browse through my blog, you'll learn about home treatments, medical procedures and new advancements in medicine that can help reduce pain. It is my hope that by writing this blog, you can live pain free too.

In some cases, a child may be getting bullied but not necessarily be letting on — and this can be a major concern, given that the psychological wounds can be deep.

If you have pain in your heel (one or both) while resting after a day of walking or being on your feet, or feel pain when first standing up in the morning, you could have plantar fasciitis. This occurs when the stretchy band in your foot that connects your toes to your heel bone stretches too far, or has small tears or rips in it. There are a number of reasons why you could get plantar fasciitis including high arches, failure to stretch, poorly fitting shoes, or wearing shoes without proper arch support.
