many sports related foot problems Christine Dobrowolski, DPM
wrote "Those Aching Feet - Revised Edition: Your
Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment of Common Foot Problems".
Dr. Dobrowolski is a podiatrist and is active in a variety of
running, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, backcountry skiing
and surfing. She wrote this book to help others treat and prevent
their foot and ankle problems. This book allows individuals to
start treatment themselves and instructs them on when it’s
time to seek advice from a physician.
Millions Americans have foot problems each year
The average person
walks 115,000 miles in a lifetime, so it’s not surprising that
55 million Americans experience one or more foot problems every year. Many
of these individuals fail to seek medical advice early and develop
complicated foot conditions that can be severe and difficult to treat.
One of the most common foot problems is heel pain. It is estimated
that 15% of the adult population complains of heel pain, which includes
one million runners who experience heel pain (plantar fasciitis) every
year. The American College of Foot and Ankle
Surgeons has stated that heel pain has reached epidemic proportions
in weekend athletes. This common condition is typically ignored, especially
by athletes. People tend to seek treatment only after the problem becomes
severe and disabling. When foot health concerns are ignored, simple conditions
can develop into more serious problems affecting the ankles, knees,
hips or the back.
Dobrowolski, has seen this happen repeatedly to the patients at her podiatry
practice. In an attempt to help
individuals with foot
problems get started early on treatment, she wrote "Those
Aching Feet". This book allows individuals to start treatment themselves
and instructs them on when it’s time to seek advice from a physician.
