During the holiday season, it's easy to fall victim to long lines and walking distances. One doctor warns people of obtaining a severe foot condition called plantar fasciitis. Podiatrist and foot surgeon Daniel Michaels, DPM says this condition is caused by things like standing for long periods of time, jumping, and running.

Fortunately, Michaels has simple tips for people to avoid obtaining the extremely painful foot condition. "(The foot roller) gets in there and breaks up some of the adhesion...you put them in the freezer and you roll your foot out on it and it feels really good on the foot," said Dr. Michaels. He also recommends purchasing a topical product to soothe the heel area.
