#FOOTGATE

Remember this picture from social media? As the story goes, the bride’s mother sent a picture of the dress and the couple disagreed on the color of the dress.  It’s black and blue! No, it’s gold and white! The couple posted the picture on social media to have their friends weigh in on the debate. [Read More…]

Did she show them on TV?

We all have our ‘guilty’ pleasures when it comes to certain television shows, especially reality shows. Once in a while I would satiate this hankering and watch Real Housewives of Atlanta – I know, I know…it is ‘senseless garbage for the mind’. Yet I was able to draw a very valuable lesson from a moment [Read More…]

The Dreaded “M” Word

I was checking my email and came across a couple of stories on the newsfeed. The common theme of the titles read “Buccaneers Staph Infections…” As I read this article, I realized that these football players experienced something that is quite common. Each condition started harmless – Bucs guard Carl Nicks had a blister on [Read More…]

I know they are cute, but…

Okay, here comes a déjà vu moment… Dr. Oz is on and today it is about ‘your feet’. Not just yesterday, a co-worker sent a ‘flicked feet’ joke email to everyone in your office – all of this coming on the ‘heels’ of a progressive pain having had previously ignored a recommendation by your healthcare [Read More…]

Already?

As I am writing this blog, I realize how quickly this New Year came and how quickly it is advancing. Over the course of the past few weeks, we had sneak previews of what lovely weather will greet us in a matter of a month or so. With the advent of sunny, blue skies and [Read More…]

Why Feet?

“Why feet?” has proved to be a rather popular question on behalf of our patients at 1Foot2Foot. In fact, I once shared the very same curiosity and quizzical expressions while navigating the high seas of medical specialties before docking at ‘Port Podiatry’. You see, feet are considered to be one of the more unglamorous parts [Read More…]

So, what brings you in today?

“So, what brings you in today?” It’s a quarter to 9 and you’re getting yourself together for your 10 o’clock-with-the ‘Doc’. Whether something recent, or maybe something you have just been putting off for a while, you have made the decision to seek further treatment – and we’re glad you chose 1Foot2Foot.

Warm Embrace

Even though, I am a New Yorker, through and through, I am quite familiar with the South, especially its trademark hospitality. Having met my husband in Virginia and extended family living in various areas of the South, I have gained an intimate experience of what to expect in my relocation to the Hampton Roads area. [Read More…]

The Foot Specialty Store

A colleague of mine, Dr. Andrew Schneider, recently reported how a patient of his spent over $200 at a “Foot Specialty Store” for an off-the-shelf arch support. Such arch supports should cost no more than $60 at best. More stores are getting into the “Foot Business” preying on people who have foot pain. I frequently [Read More…]

Avoiding Dr. Scholl’s Tax

In today’s economy, every dollar counts. So why do so many Americans pay Dr. Scholl’s Tax? What is Dr. Scholl’s Tax you ask? Follow me here. Your foot’s been hurting. Your friend recommended you see a specialist at 1Foot 2Foot, but you want to try to fix it yourself. You go the local drug store [Read More…]

Heel pain can be caused by many different conditions, some of them in combination. However, a very common cause of heel pain, plantar fasciitis, which can be treated very successfully with custom functional orthotics (better than 90% of the time in our practice), at times requires surgical intervention (that stubborn 10%). The old standard procedure [Read More…]

These Feet are made for Traveling

I was recently at the airport and required to remove my shoes to pass security. I then began to wonder…what is living on the floor at the airport where everyone walks essentially barefoot and moreover, what can I catch from walking barefoot across this floor. Athlete’s foot? Plantar wart? MRSA bacterial infection? All possible and [Read More…]

Kids and Their Feet: Keeping Both Happy

Childhood is full of unexpected illnesses. It is common for parents to take their children to the pediatrician for ear aches, runny noses, and stomach aches. Parents are excellent at taking notice of childhood milestones, such as first tooth, first word, and first steps. However, a commonly overlooked area of the body that should also [Read More…]
