Stretching is key to beating pain

It's not a stretch to think you can recover from plantar fasciitis, one of the most common causes of heal pain.

"Plantar fasciitis involves inflammation of the fibrous band of tissue that runs along the sole of the foot," said Dr. Kevin Varner with Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

The inflammation usually crops up when someone begins a new exercise program, or as part of the normal aging process. The same exercises that stretch the achilles tendon will help stretch the bottom of the foot where the problem is.

Varner says people with this problem should limit exercise, take anti-inflammatory medications, and wear comfortable shoes.

Smoking parents can lessen effects

Parents who smoke can take steps to lessen the effects of secondhand smoke on children.

"Parents who smoke should do so outside the home, designate a well-ventilated room in the home where there is a fresh, outside air exchange, or wait until children go to bed," Dr. Marianna Sockrider with Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital in Houston.

Never smoke with children in the car, and chose to sit in non-smoking sections. Studies have shown secondhand smoke can cause respiratory problems and an increased chance of ear infections in children.
