Ankle-tastic: Ankle Avulsion Fracture

Posted by on Sunday, June 17th, 2012

Ankles! So important to every step we take, yet so easy to really mess up. Today we are here to talk about one of those types of mess-ups:  ankle avulsion fractures.

Ankle what? I thought you’d say that, so let’s look at the unfamiliar word between our familiar friends “ankle” and “fractures.”

All About Oversupination

Posted by on Friday, June 15th, 2012

Remember yesterday when we talked about the oft-used-in-running term overpronation? That was fun. Today let’s cover a related word, supination.

First, a review of overpronation. Pronation is the way your foot naturally rolls inward a little bit to help your feet absorb shock as you stand, walk, or run. Overpronation is when a person’s foot rolls in more than normal, causing strain not only on their feet, but also on the muscles that run from their feet up their legs. The result is an increase in injuries to their feet and legs.

All About Overpronation

Posted by on Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Jack: Well, it’s not actually as high a quantity as it appears because a lot of those are dummy stims for CR items.

Jill: Oh, right, well, then you should just be able to get it quickly through the TDS in time for PPMR.

Sam: Say, any of you seen one of those new percosimolets?

Jill: I like the basic idea, but I don’t think they’re as smooth as the mervs.

Keeping Your Feet Happy During Pregnancy

Posted by on Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

If you’ve ever been pregnant or known anyone who was, then you’re familiar with a statement something like this: “And on top of everything, my feet are killing me!”

Yes, we’ve all heard stories about aching feet during pregnancy, so let’s find out what actually happens and what you can do to make that part of your pregnancy a little easier.

Verrucas!

Posted by on Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Verrucas–it’s a lovely word, isn’t it? What could it be? Perhaps it’s a name for a soft southern breeze felt in the autumn in Trieste, or maybe it’s the name of a candy sold only in Luxembourg. Maybe it’s something that flamenco dancers cry out at the height of particularly ecstatic performances. Or isn’t “Verruca” the name of that adorable little dog being walked by the glamorous Russian woman in the park?

Alas. If only. I am afraid that I must tell you–if you did not already know–that verrucas are warts that may be found on the sole of your foot. They are also known as plantar warts. I know, I’m disappointed too. Nevertheless, let’s investigate.

Whoa! Charley Horses and Calf Cramps

Posted by on Thursday, June 7th, 2012

There’s nothing that quite compares to the pain of a severe leg cramp–other than, of course, a monster seizing your leg and squeezing it in its big monster hands, while another monster stabs it with white hot knives. Worse, they strike out of nowhere. So what can we do about these monsters?
