Dr. Lawrence Burns Discusses "Happy Feet" on Living Your Best Life with Genma Holmes

Join Living Your Best Life radio show in partnership with Hope For Women Magazine as we help 2012 be YOUR year for a healthier lifestyle. As many discuss weight loss resolutions at the start of the new year that go by the “waist” side by the second week of January, we are going to help our listeners and readers try to stay focused by covering health issues that will cover the body, mind, and spirit year round.

On January 28, 2012, the show will cover another often over look health issue; care of the feet. Dr. Lawrence Burns, DPM, a new contributor to both the the radio show and magazine, will answer questions about foot care and how to have "healthy happy feet".

Healthy feet play an important role in maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle. Healthy feet give us stability, balance and allow us to remain safe when we move about.

Dr. Burns' discussion will include information about routine checkups, treatments, high heels during pregnancy, and when to get surgery. Dr. Burns will also answer questions about commonly treated foot problems like:
Circulatory Disorders
Corns and Calluses
Diabetic Foot Care
Flat Feet
Foot/Ankle Fractures
Foot Ulcer Care
Fungal Infections
Gait Abnormalities
Heel Pain/Spurs
Ingrown Toenails
Occupational Injuries
Skin Problems
Sports Injuries
Swollen Feet
Vascular Disease/Edema
