Podiatrists Debunk 11 Feet Myths | Debunked

Podiatrists Sarah Haller and Brad Schaeffer debunk 11 myths about feet. They talk about where warts really come from and how to prevent ingrown toenails. They also explain how a bunion is not caused by wearing heels. In fact, it’s a deformity in the bone that can only be fixed through surgery. Toe spacers like ‘Yogatoes’ are only temporary fixes.

Haller is a fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeon at Essex Union Podiatry and co-star of TLC’s ‘My Feet Are Killing Me.’ She specializes in musculoskeletal deformities, sports medicine, and post-traumatic reconstruction and revision surgery of the foot and ankle.
