Long-Term Effects of a Sprained Ankle
(http://ow.ly/102S30n3VYS)

Ankle sprains are a fairly common type of injury, especially in people who play a lot of physical sports. According to a recent study, approximately 2 million ankle sprains take place each year in the United States. This injury can lead to a variety of long-term side effects too, such as continuous ankle pain, ankle instability, stiffness, swelling and weakness. These side effects are more likely to take place when the original injury is improperly treated.

Ways to Ease Arthritis Foot Pain
(http://ow.ly/2srd30n3VYK)

Osteoarthritis, which is the most prevalent type of arthritis, is experienced by millions of people every year. This type of arthritis gradually develops over time from overuse of specific joints. Osteoarthritis develops when cartilage between the bones at your pivotal joints begins to wear away. As a result, your bones will start to grind against each other, thus causing pain and swelling. Some ways to alleviate osteoarthritis pain include: seeing your doctor, wearing supportive shoes, and using topical medicines.

Risk Factors for Nail Fungal Infection
(http://ow.ly/DR1O30n3VYI)

Many people tend to experience thickened, discolored toenails and fingernails, and about 50 percent of this group of people's nails are abnormal due to a fungal infection located at the nail bed, matrix, or nail plate. The fungal organism that is responsible for most types of fungal nail infections is referred to as Trichophyton rubrum. Some risk factors for fungal nail infections include: communal showers that expose feet to fungi, tight footwear that promotes a crowding of toes, and diseases that influence the immune system like diabetes or AIDS.

Causes of Achilles Tendonitis
(http://ow.ly/PTAT30n3VYC)

Excessive exercise or even just excessive walking are considered to be common causes of Achilles tendonitis, particularly for athletes. However, factors unrelated to exercise have also been found to contribute to Achilles tendonitis risk. For example, rheumatoid arthritis and infection are both closely linked to a large proportion of cases of tendonitis in the heels. Other potential causes can include: exercising without a proper warm up, wearing old or poorly fitting shoes, and having bone spurs in the back of your heels.

Exercises to Strengthen the Achilles Tendon
(http://ow.ly/39So30n3VYA)

Like many exercise and sports-related injuries, Achilles tendinitis, or pain from inflammation in the Achilles tendon at the back of the hell, usually stems from physical overuse and repetitive stress of the Achilles tendon. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons claims that a sudden increase in your running distance or exercising with particularly tight calf muscles that haven't had a proper opportunity to warm up can also be causes of the condition. Stretching and strengthening the calf muscles are the most effective ways to regain your normal functioning.
