Foot Pain

If you have foot pain, then the internet is a treasure trove of information as well as misinformation! A recent study on the quality of foot care information on the web did raise some concerns with it:

The overall quality of Internet information for common foot and ankle diagnoses is variable, raising concerns about what information is currently available to patients.

There is no substitution for good quality advice from a licensed health professional versus an anonymous blogger!

Some source of infromation are better than other. I have found two sites that professionals answer questions on foot problems to be particularly helpful: Foot Health Forum and Podiatry Experts. Like any online advice, take the information with caution.
