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.”

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 people 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, dry or flaky skin on feet and heels, Dr. Bitcover recommends Xenna Corporation’s CalleX® Exfoliating Ointment (http://www.callexointment.com).

Acid-free, diabetic-friendly, CalleX Ointment moisturizes and exfoliates dry, cracked heels, and has been shown in consumer studies to significantly smooth and soften dry feet within 15 to 30 days. Formulated with natural exfoliating enzymes, patented CalleX Ointment is sold in the footcare section at Walgreens, Rite Aid, Stop & Shop, Kerr Drug and many Medicine Shoppe pharmacies.

Also recommended by Dr. Bitcover is Xenna’s patented, diabetic-friendly NonyX® Nail Gel (http://www.nonyx.com) which addresses the problem of unattractive, dark or yellow toenails by breaking down discolored keratin debris buildup under the nail. NonyX Gel softens keratin debris so that it can be scraped out from under toenails after 4or 5 weeks of daily applications.

Overall nail appearance improves in the months that follow, eventually resulting in toenails that are clearer and healthier-looking.

NonyX Nail Gel is found in the foot care aisle at Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, Walmart, Duane Reade, HEB, Kerr Drug, and many Medicine Shoppes.
