Do you know the causes? http://bestfootcare.co.uk/calf-pain-do-you-know-the-causes/ http://bestfootcare.co.uk/calf-pain-do-you-know-the-causes/#comments Sun, 04 Nov 2012 12:07:06 +0000 Foot Care Directory http://bestfootcare.co.uk/?p=409 Share

Do you get pain in your calves? The pain can be caused by a number of things:

  • Over-activity (especially if you were still and/or cold, and leaped straight into it)
  • Injury (eg, tendonitis or tearing of the muscle)
  • Dietary imblances (eat those minerals!)
  • Poor blood flow to the legs (eg, if you have peripheral vascular disease or PVD)
  • A blood clot in the calf (a deep vein thrombosis or DVT)
If your calf pain doesn’t clear up after rest, get it checked out with your doctor.

Ways to control emotional overeating http://bestfootcare.co.uk/ways-to-control-emotional-overeating/ http://bestfootcare.co.uk/ways-to-control-emotional-overeating/#comments Mon, 29 Oct 2012 07:34:58 +0000 Foot Care Directory http://bestfootcare.co.uk/?p=347 Share

Are you overweight and/or diabetic? The chances are that you sometimes eat as an emotional response rather than from hunger – and what you eat at these times is probably sugary, fatty or salty, or a combination, which all just help you want more.

As you’ll know, foot care is harder if you do have excess lbs, and there’s a double whammy if you have diabetes. Helping control your eating is a good first step to helping your foot health.
