:: Fixing Your Feet 6ed
Fixing Your Feet 6ed
Foot pain and injuries can thwart even the most experienced athlete, whether on the trail, asphalt, or ball court. Every professional or amateur athlete who pushes the limits of his or her feet needs to learn the basics and finer points of footcare. Foot expert and ultrarunner John Vonhof discredits the conventional wisdom of "no pain, no gain," teaching instead how the interplay of anatomy, biomechanics, and footwear can lead to happy or hurting feet. With a focus on individual and team care, the 6th edition of
Fixing Your Feet
covers all that any active person needs to know to find out what works now and also hundreds of miles down the road.
This sixth edition has an important new chapter, Blister Prevention—A New Paradigm. It contains new information about blister formation and introduces the concept of shear, which, in turn, changes the way we look at blister prevention and treatment.
John's advice comes from his own experience, as well as from numerous foot experts and ultramarathoners who know what works for them. For each problem, numerous solutions are offered. There is no one best solution—different treatments work for different feet. Clear diagrams, photos, and charts demonstrate foot maladies and treatment techniques.
This comprehensive resource covers the full gamut of footwear basics, prevention, and treatments. If it can happen to a foot, it's covered in this book.
