NEW ORLEANS - Nearly 75 percent of Americans suffer from debilitating foot pain. Considering the amount of pressure that each stride you take places on the bottom of your feet, it's almost certain that everyone will suffer from some type of foot pain at some time in their life. Whether it's something like athlete's foot or an in-grown toenail, to more complicated problems like a bone spur, bunion, or poor circulation, there are ways to soothe your aching feet.
