According to podiatrist Ira Meyers, "Many runners experience heel pain and in most cases, they think that the diagnosis is plantar fasciitis. Many times they’re right. However, about half of the runners that I treat come to my office thinking they have plantar fasciitis, but in fact, have something else.  Here are some common diagnoses that mimic plantar fascial pain: Plantar fasciosis, calcaneal stress fractures, nerve entrapments, and muscle cramps. Several other possibilities exist that may cause heel pain/plantar fascia-type symptoms, including heel bone tumors (benign or malignant), systemic diseases such as diabetes, or several types of arthritis. Over 100 years ago, the most common cause of heel pain was syphilis," says Dr. Meyers.

Older Americans need to go for regular eye exams, get rid of their throw rugs, and retire their high heels. These are just some of the pieces of advice experts on aging and government health officials are doling out in tandem with a new report that shows falls are the number one cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries among adults over 65. 
 
In 2014, older Americans fell 29 million times, leading to seven million injuries, according to the report out today in the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly ReportAbout 2.8 million cases were treated in emergency departments, and approximately 800,000 seniors went on to be hospitalized for fall-related issues. More than 27,000 falls led to death.

Footprints at a crime scene provide evidence that can be as crucial as fingerprints and DNA in catching and convicting culprits. But exceptional expertise is required for them to be interpreted correctly and then stand up in court. This is the realm of forensic podiatry – taught to a high level at the University of Huddersfield. ?It is the only UK university that offers a Master’s course in the subject, led by one of the world leaders in the discipline, Professor Wesley Vernon. Now, it has a senior lecturer whose own research has led to the development of an advanced new system of footprint measurement at crime scenes.

It has been dubbed the Reel Method and is beginning to be employed by forensic podiatrists and disseminated in specialist publications. It takes its name from the University of Huddersfield’s Dr. Sarah Reel, who developed the technique during her PhD studies, for a thesis titled "Development and Evaluation of a Valid and Reliable Footprint Measurement Approach in Forensic Identification".
