I wrote this book because too
many people suffer from foot and ankle pain unnecessarily.

Are you someone who looks forward to the shrieks, shrills and festivities that surround Halloween? We want to highlight a unique holiday activity perfect for your family – one especially if you have a love for science. From October 28th-29th, 2013, the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, PA is having its Spooky Science Sleepover. Spend the night with interactive exhibits and Halloween activities.

Going out on Halloween night, depending on where you live, can be a rather chilly adventure. Temperatures can drop over the course of the night and leave kids and adults shivering going house to house. Costumes should have enough room for layering, and feet cannot be forgotten! Due to cold weather and possible long distances of walking, feet need to be kept warm and protected. If you live in a particularly cold region, frostbite is a risk to be very watchful about. It doesn’t take long for toes to become cold, numb and frostbitten. Choose insulated shoes or boots to keep feet safe from the elements. It is always a good idea to wear something waterproof if possible, or you could put some plastic bags between socks and shoes if necessary.

If you are heading out to an adult party, it may not be the wisest idea to wear the towering high-heeled boots that go with your costume. Opt for something that is still costume worthy but won’t have you limping in pain or with an injury at the end of the night. Dealing with blisters, heel pain, or ball of foot pain isn’t the greatest way to end a fun night.

Besides a stomachache from all the sweets, if the aftermath of Halloween also includes foot pain or an injury, don’t hesitate to contact foot specialist Dr. Phil Pinkser. Our office in Washington, PA treats all ages. Call us at (724) 225-7410 to make an appointment
