Foot Pain Blog

Having pain in your foot, ankle or lower leg? Evidently you are either trying to find out what you have and what to do about it, or you have been to a doctor and are trying to reinforce what he told you. Either way you have come to the right place. I discuss various types of lower extremity problems in an easy to understand manner; (You do not have to be a doctor in order to understand the doctor). This site is constantly being updated as I continue to discuss different subject matter and add to the existing subjects already present on my site. Since I am constantly reviewing various medical sites I also include items of interest that may not be related to the lower extremity but are important enough that I would like to share with my readers.
