Forget the Gut Check: Podiatrist Suggests Upcoming Super Bowl® a Good Time for Armchair Quarterbacks to Get a Foot Check

Share Article

Lawrenceville, New Jersey, podiatrist Dr. Bruce Bitcover, says, "We've all met the "armchair quarterback," often a person whose own health may be flagging because of spending more time watching sports on television than on a regular exercise regimen. Since healthy feet and the proper shoes are essential to obtaining the benefits of just about any type of exercise, getting a foot check is a step in the right direction for people who fall into this category."

Without question, football is the most popular spectator sport in America - one that keeps millions of fans sitting in their armchairs for hours at a time. Unfortunately, that's not the way for fans to stay in shape themselves.

Lawrenceville, New Jersey, podiatrist Dr. Bruce Bitcover, says, "We've all met the "armchair quarterback," often a middle-aged person whose own health may be flagging because of spending more time watching sports on television than on a regular exercise regimen. Since healthy feet and the proper shoes are essential to obtaining the benefits of just about any type of exercise, getting a foot check is a step in the right direction for people who fall into this category."

Dr. Bitcover offers the following tips for men who want to start an exercise regimen, or for those who have already started on one:

1. Get a physical exam and medical clearance before starting any exercise program

2. If you experience swelling, foot or heel pain after a workout, don't ignore the pain. Schedule an appointment with a podiatrist in order to prevent possible further damage or subsequent injuries.

Super Bowl Sunday is also a good time to begin thinking about getting your feet into shape for spring and summer weather. In fact, adults of all ages tend to forget about their feet during the winter months when they are buried in socks, shoes and boots. But feet can often become unsightly over the winter developing thickened skin or nail discoloration.

Dr. Bitcover advises, "Properly fitted shoes are the first line of defense against the formation of thickened skin areas on feet. However, because of individual variations in foot structure and movement, buildup may still occur."

For thick or flaky skin on feet and heels, Dr. Bitcover recommends Xenna Corporation's CalleX® Exfoliating Dry Foot Ointment (http://www.callexointment.com). Acid-free and diabetic-friendly, CalleX Ointment moisturizes and exfoliates dry, cracked heels, and has been shown in consumer studies to significantly reduce thickened skin areas and scales within 15 to 30 days. Formulated with natural exfoliating enzymes, patented CalleX Ointment is used by podiatrists and sold in many chain drugstores in the foot care section.

Also popular with podiatrists is Xenna's acid-free, diabetic-friendly NonyX® Nail Gel (http://www.nonyx.com) which addresses the problem of unattractive, discolored or yellow toenails by breaking down the cause of the problem, keratin debris buildup. NonyX Gel softens and breaks down this keratin debris until it is loose enough to begin scraping out from under the nail - usually after 4 weeks of daily applications of this all natural gel.

Overall nail appearance improves in the months that follow, along with regular toenail cutting, eventually resulting in toenails that are clearer and healthier-looking. NonyX Nail Gel is found in the foot care aisle of chain drugstores and at mass retailers. NonyX is on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Nonyx-Nail-Gel/126217594112519?ref=ts.

NonyX can be found in the footcare aisle at Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, Rite Aid, Duane Reade, Kinney Drugs, HEB and Kerr Drug, through Publix, Medicine Shoppe, ShopKo, Harris Teeter, Hannaford, Sweetbay and online at http://www.drugstore.com.
