Foot Pain? It Could Be Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is probably the most common musculoskeletal concern that podiatrists see. Plantar fasciitis (pronounced “fash-ee-eye-tis”) is an inflammatory condition of the plantar fascia. This is a band of tissue that runs along the base of the foot from the heel to the ball of the foot. It plays a role in maintaining the foot’s arch. It also helps to create energy efficiency when walking and running. With overuse, or excessive pressure, the fascia can become irritated and inflamed.
DOS AND DON’TS: TECHNOLOGY & KIDS
Technology is fully integrated and essential to our lives. This is probably even more so in China where we can do almost any task from our phones. For kids, technology can be a tool for school, learning and development. On the other hand, without proper supervision and limits, children can suffer negative effects. When technology is overused, kids show a decline in creativity. They start to prefer technology to playing outside or with other kids. They lose practice interacting with groups, thus stunting social skills. And, some video games have been shown to influence aggressive thoughts and behavior.
