After making the diagnosis of stress fracture, your doctor will tell you to decrease activity levels. You may either be instructed to wear athletic shoes or a stiff soled shoe, to reduce bending motions of your foot when you walk.

In addition, applications of essential oils including peppermint and chamomile have shown to provide some relief.
A sport bike is a bike that is designed for speed and handles well. It can stop and accelerate quickly and is incredibly maneuverable. These are sometimes called “crotch rockets.” They have a lightweight frame and a high performance engine.

Varicose veins – Twisted, enlarged veins near the surface of the skin. They most commonly develop in the legs and ankles. Varicose veins develop when you have faulty valves in your veins and weakened vein walls. Normally, the one-way valves in these veins keep the blood flowing efficiently against gravity up toward the heart. When these valves do not function properly, blood pools, pressure builds up, and the veins become weakened, enlarged, and twisted. This is called venous insufficiency. This is where Easy Feet comes in. Easy Feet is a fantastic new product that allows you to clean and massage your feet without having to bend over to do it.
I was going to write my first reflexology article explaining all about reflexology and how it works, yet something someone said last night during a meeting I attended inspired me to write about the feet and why it is of benefit to work with them. Someone made a brief comment about their feet, which another person answered saying ?well, everyone?s feet are always sore!? This comment made me realize that reflexology or not, there are so many reasons as to why we should ALWAYS look after our feet. We owe it to them!
