Fixing Your Feet: Prevention and Treatments for Athletes

The 5th edition of Fixing Your Feet is due out in early February 2011.


"If it can happen to feet, John Vonhof offers wise advice about dealing with it. After more than 25 years of treating feet, and reading about treating feet, I've found nothing, absolutely nothing, as helpful as Fixing Your Feet." - Buck Tilton, MS, co-founder of the Wilderness Medicine Institute of NOLS and author of more than a dozen books on outdoor health and safety.

"I can't praise Fixing Your Feet enough. It is written for us, the walkers and hikers and runners who need advice on what to do before and after we stress our feet." - Wendy Bumgardner, Guide to Walking
