Exercises for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thin layer of tough tissue supporting the arch of the foot. This may cause the heel to hurt, feel hot or swell. Microscopic tears, which occur repeatedly to the plantar fascia cause pain. Sometimes plantar fasciitis is called “heel spurs”, but this is not always accurate, since bony growths on the heel may or may not be a factor.

Plantar Fasciitis is often recognized when there is heel pain that is present on first putting weight on your feet. This pain usually gets better with movement but returns again when you sit or lie down for even a few minutes.

* Homeopathic Rhus Tox 30c taken twice a day can help relieve pain.

* Wear only shoes with good arch support.

* Try to avoid going barefoot during the healing process.

* Lose weight. Added weight adds extra pressure per square inch to the surface of the feet. Stretching the plantar surface of the feet are imperative for the healing process.

These exercises are for stretching and strengthening the muscles of the foot and ankle.

Psoriatic Nails, Arthritis

Psoriatic Nails

About 50 percent of persons with active psoriasis have psoriatic changes in fingernails and/or toenails. In some instances psoriasis may occur only in the nails and nowhere else on the body.

Psoriatic changes in nails range from mild to severe, generally reflecting the extent of psoriatic involvement of the nail plate, nail matrix (tissue from which the nail grows), nail bed (tissue under the nail), and skin at the base of the nail.

Damage to the nail bed by the pustular psoriasis can result in loss of the nail.

Nail changes in psoriasis fall into general categories that may occur singly or all together:

* The nail plate is deeply pitted, probably due to defects in nail growth caused by psoriasis.
* The nail has a yellow to yellow-pink discoloration, probably due to psoriatic involvement of the nail bed.
* White areas appear under the nail plate. These are air bubbles marking spots where the nail plate is becoming detached from the nail bed (onycholysis) . There may be reddened skin around the nail.
* The nail plate crumbles in yellowish patches (onychodystrophy), probably due to psoriatic involvement in the nail matrix.
* The nail is entirely lost due to psoriatic involvement of the nail matrix and nail bed.

What Are Plantar Warts?

Small and fleshy.  Rigid and flat.  These are the characteristics of a plantar wart and they are seen on the bottoms of your feet.  Plantar warts are brown or gray lumps that are seen on the soles of your feet.  They are benign skin growths that stem from the HPV or human papillomavirus.

This virus can enter your skin through tiny cuts.  They are commonly noted beneath the pressure points on the heels or balls of the soles of your feet.  They are no cause for worry, but they can cause discomfort at times.

This particular type of virus is not as contagious as other warts, but can still be spread to others.  It can exhibit itself in moist and warm areas, such as the shower floor and any public area where others are walking barefoot.  Some people are more prone to contracting plantar warts than others are, as each person responds differently.

Children, teenagers, people with compromised immune systems and skin conditions that cause one to have cuts in their skin are most commonly affected.
