Summertime, a season of blessed bipedal liberation, also is a prime time for experiencing foot problems ranging from painful soles to fungal infections to even injuries from accidents. Southern Nevada’s temperate climes make such foot problems year-round issues, says Dr. Christine Clark, a Las Vegas doctor of podiatric medicine. “We’re a little different in Las Vegas because the cold weather is not so drastic like it is back East, (where feet are) enclosed in shoes for about six months.”

Clark says that the most common summertime problem is plantar fasciitis, a painful irritation or inflammation of the plantar fascia, a tissue that extends almost the length of the foot. It can be associated with the wearing of flip-flops, sandals, or other types of footwear that don’t provide enough support for the arch of the foot. Clark adds, “In summertime, people are wearing more shoes without good arches and then they’re walking on vacation or just doing more activities.”
