Get Well Wednesday: Your Foot Pain May Be Plantar Fasciitis

About two million people suffer with plantar fasciitis ((plant-ar fash-ee-itis)) one of the most common causes of heel pain and very common in runners. It usually occurs between the age of 40 and 60.

WHAT IS PLANTAR FASCITIS?

Inflammation of the plantar fascia, the bowstring-like tissue that stretches from the heel bone to the base of the toes. Plantar fasciitis can be due to calcaneal spurs, which typically cause localized tenderness and pain that is made worse by stepping down on the heel.

Plantar fasciitis may be related to physical activity overload, abnormal foot mechanics, or may be due to underlying diseases that cause arthritis, such as Reiter disease, ankylosing spondylitis, and diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis. Treatment is designed to decrease inflammation and avoid re-injury.

Icing reduces pain and inflammation. Anti-inflammatory agents, such as ibuprofen and injections of cortisone, can help. Infrequently, surgery is done on chronically inflamed spurs. A donut-shaped shoe insert can take pressure off a calcaneal spur and lessen plantar fasciitis.

WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF PLANTAR FASCITIS?

Plantar fasciitis typically causes a stabbing painin the bottom of your foot near the heel. The pain is usually the worst with the first few steps after awakening, although it can also be triggered by long periods of standing or rising from sitting. The pain is usually worse after exercise, not during it

HOW IS PLANTAR FASCITIS DIAGNOSED?

Diagnosis is primarily based on history and physical examination. … Use of ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging is reserved for recalcitrant cases or to rule out other heel pathology; findings of increasedplantar fascia thickness and abnormal tissue signal the diagnosis ofplantar fasciitis

WHAT CAUSES IT?  ARE THING LIKES WEIGHT OR AGE A FACTOR?

You’re at a greater risk of developing plantar fasciitis if you’re overweight or obese. This is due to the increased pressure on your plantar fascia ligaments, especially if you have sudden weight gain.

WHAT TREATMENT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PLANTAR FASCITIS?

Most people who have plantar fasciitis recover with conservative treatments, including resting, icing the painful area and stretching, in several months.

Medications

Pain relievers such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve) can ease the pain and inflammation associated with plantar fasciitis.

Therapies

Stretching and strengthening exercises or use of specialized devices may provide symptom relief. These include:

  • Physical therapy. A physical therapist can instruct you in a series of exercises to stretch the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon and to strengthen lower leg muscles, which stabilize your ankle and heel. A therapist might also teach you to apply athletic taping to support the bottom of your foot.
  • Night splints. Your physical therapist or doctor might recommend that you wear a splint that stretches your calf and the arch of your foot while you sleep. This holds the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon in a lengthened position overnight and facilitates stretching.
  • Orthotics. Your doctor might prescribe off-the-shelf or custom-fitted arch supports (orthotics) to help distribute pressure to your feet more evenly.

Surgical or other procedures

When more-conservative measures aren’t working after several months, your doctor might recommend:

  • Injections. Injecting a type of steroid medication into the tender area can provide temporary pain relief. Multiple injections aren’t recommended because they can weaken your plantar fascia and possibly cause it to rupture. More recently, platelet-rich plasma has been used, under ultrasound guidance, to provide pain relief with less risk of tissue rupture.
  • Extracorporeal shock wave therapy. In this procedure, sound waves are directed at the area of heel pain to stimulate healing. It’s usually used for chronic plantar fasciitis that hasn’t responded to more-conservative treatments. This procedure might cause bruising, swelling, pain, numbness or tingling. Some studies show promising results, but it hasn’t been shown to be consistently effective.
  • Tenex procedure. This minimally invasive procedure removes the scar tissue of plantar fasciitis without surgery.
  • Surgery. Few people need surgery to detach the plantar fascia from the heel bone. It’s generally an option only when the pain is severe and all else fails. Side effects include a weakening of the arch in your foot.

ONCE DIAGNOSED, HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

A: Your healing time depends on the severity of your condition. One of the best things you can do for your feet is to rest. The natural history of pain from plantar fasciitis can last up to 24 months.

DOES DIET PLAY A ROLE IN PLANTAR FASCITIS, IF SO WHAT TYPES OF FOOD NEED TO BE AVOIDED?

The main way our diet affects plantar fasciitis is through our consumption of foods that have either inflammatory or anti-inflammatory qualities. … Spinach, while not one of the most popular foods, is one of the most effective anti-inflammatories, as it contains calcium, magnesium, Vitamin C, and MSM.

Weekend Wednesday: How to Get the Boho Look

collage of clothes with a boho look

This is the second in an occasional series on weekend clothes with a specific personality — see all the posts in the series here. Today: how to get the boho look.

As a reminder, there was an old book I had where the author (90s-era CNN style commentator Elsa Klensch) talked about how “[m]any successful businesswomen I know tap into their private visions of themselves and express that inner being in their weekend wear. … On weekends, I want to be softer, more romantic. My fantasy in the summer is to look as though I just stepped out of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel wearing Gatsby-style long skirts and gently flowing chiffon scarves.”

Accordingly, I thought it might be fun to round up different stores selling “weekend vibe” clothes in different personalities for our ongoing Weekend Wednesdays series. After all, we’ve talked in the past about the weekend you vs. the weekday you — as well as sharing our best tips for upgrading your weekend clothes and cultivating style in general. Last fall we covered “tough girl chic” — a flawed term for sure but one that I thought nicely conveyed the women whose ideal weekend outfit is a black t-shirt and black ripped jeans (raising hand). Today, let’s look at how to get the boho look. 

There are a ton of stores that appeal to a freewheeling, relaxed, “flower child” kind of mindset — even if you’re well past the days of planning outfits for Coachella. Some of the top stores you might want to check out to support your boho mindset for the weekend include some of the stores and brands below — note that a lot of do have workwear offerings as well. If the boho mindset appeals to you because you’re interested in slow fashion and sustainability, you may want to check out our Slow Guide Shopping Guide (which we’re in the midst of updating!). 

Building Blocks for the Boho Look

  • Denim (ideally bought at a thrift store or a brand using sustainable denim like Reformation, Everlane, or Warp & Weft — get more ideas from this Fashionista piece on sustainable denim) – flared denim approved
  • tees with a tunic-y vibe or an eco-friendly vibe (à la Free People), as well as thrift store graphic tees
  • Floppy hats (I’d be curious for which brands people recommend most for a boho chic look, but I will note that readers have recommended this sun hat brand
  • Frye boots, Docs
  • Play with volume – One person told me to think of it as a volume play — one part of your look should be really voluminous, whereas the rest of it should be slender — so, for example, if you’re wearing a sylph-like maxi dress, add a floppy hat… if you’re wearing a voluminous shirt pair it with a close-fitting bottom

Notes on How to Get Boho Style Over 30

It’s been interesting putting this post together because I don’t necessarily think of boho style as something ONLY for the 18 year olds among us — but it can be more complicated to think of boho style for the slightly older set. I’ve tried to put together pieces below that I think professional women might actually want to wear on the weekends — but when in doubt think of older women like Stevie Nicks or Lisa Bonet as inspiration, and remember that boho style is very much about sustainability and comfort — yes please! Look to more mature brands like Soft Surroundings, Eileen Fisher, or Johnny Was for ideas for how to get a more toned-down boho vibe without high-waisted denim short-shorts (I’ve heard them called “denim undies” and died laughing), crop tops, and mini-mini-skirts — even if those brands don’t 100% speak to you it will give you ideas for how to mix and match younger stuff and more traditional stuff. 

Free People

how to get the boho look over 30 - free people

Pictured: one / two / three / four

I always think of Free People as being ultra-wearable boho fashion for your 20s, 30s and beyond. The bralette is pictured above not so much as an outfit suggestion (although hey, you do you) but as a note that a LOT of readers have called it out as being a super comfortable and pretty bralette to have peeking out of loose tops — and it does have more than 1000+ great reviews. Free People makes some of my favorite weekend tees — soft, cozy, comfortable. I didn’t picture this tee that I’ve got my eye on because there’s nothing particularly boho about it but it looks like the one to beat this season as far as pricey t-shirts go. 

Anthropologie

Pictured above: one / two / three / four

Anthro is a good shopping spot for a ton of personalities, from boho to artsy to a clothing style I can only describe as “I wish I were French.” Accordingly there’s a bit of overlap here between the styles. The white t-shirt with pretty sleeves pictured above also comes in black and feels like a particularly modern tone-on-tone idea for boho style. Note that Anthro is launching plus sizes very soon!

Lucky Brand

(All pictured pieces available in regular and plus sizes!)

Lucky Brand is definitely wearable boho clothes — easy to throw on for super casual weekends. I like that they come in a range of plus sizes as well. Lucky Brand is sold at a ton of places, including Nordstrom, Macy’s, as well as their own stores.

How about you, ladies — do you gravitate towards a boho look? Do you think your weekend vibe has a personality — and if so, what is it? (For our next one in this series we’ll do a preppy vibe…)

Kristoff St. John’s Last Soap Episode Airs Wednesday

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The last “Young and the Restless” episode featuring Kristoff St. John will air Wednesday on CBS.

The actor, who played the struggling alcoholic and ladies’ man Neil Winters for 27 years, died Sunday at his home in Los Angeles. He was 52. The cause of death is under investigation by the medical examiner.

St. John had played Neil Winters on the soap opera since 1991, earning nine daytime Emmy nominations. He won a Daytime Emmy in 1992 for outstanding younger actor in a drama series.

His business guy character wended his way through romances, deaths of loved ones and other daytime travails that descended into alcoholism before going into rehab.

“The Young and the Restless” will broadcast a special tribute to St. John during Friday’s show.
