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
"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.
