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.

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
