For and anti-inflammatory and pain relief, Biofreeze has aided countless patients in their discomfort dealing with Plantar Fasciitis, arthritis, bruises, strains and sprains.
Topical Treatment Products run the gamut from preventative care to more severe symptom management. Dry, cracked heels can often lead to painful callous buildup, or act as an entrance site for bacteria and fungus. RevitaDerm40 or CeraVe foot creams each provide medical strength revitalization and moisture to help prevent such an occurrence. Pairing with an exfoliator such as Calicylic Cream increases the chance of best result from a moisturizing product.
A highly effective Anti-Fungal with quick, easy application is Formula 3 with Tolnafate. This product is meant to penetrate nail tissue and attack the fungal growth area. In some more highly developed cases, Kera Nail Gel can be used to soften the hypertrophic nail plates and allow the Formula 3 to better work its magic. Considering the amount of ways to contract Athletes’ Foot, very few people can count themselves out as a possible contractor. Clarus Antifungal Cream also contains the penetrating agent Tolnafate, attacking the more widespread fungal growth of Athletes’ Foot.

In the event that surgery needs to be performed, a Surgical Shoe is crucial in protecting and offloading the pressure from a post-surgical, wound or fracture site. A more sudden injury like a sprain, or a long-standing bum ankle both benefit from being supported by aNylon Ankle Brace before any physical activity. Most commonly associated with over working or over use of the foot and ankle muscles, Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis affect a huge number of people every day. The Powerstep Ultrastretch Sockprovides a comfortable stretch to the calf and soft tissues associated with these painful conditions.
