Default Foot problems & cures

Arthritis slowed me down for awhile, but no more. I wrote about the cure here:

Now I don't even need the BC asprin powder to survive a four hour session. But I did manage to develop a corn on the little toe that was very bothersome. I went through the normal removal and padding treatments with some success, but still had pain. I had my wife pick up Orajel (that's right - the stuff for rubbing on baby's gums when teething). Believe it or not, it works! I would skate until the pain was increasing and apply the orajel. Immediate relief.

So if anyone is having foot problems: be imaginative and you may discover a way to relieve the discomfort.

^^This is all presuming you take care of yourself and keep at it.
I skate with a gentleman that is 81 and still going strong. So if you are able, keep going.
