Not Your Average Website
Blister Prevention is not your average health-related website. For instance, you won’t find unhelpful generic information or advice here – the type that seems to dominate the internet these days. No way. Nothing here has been regurgitated by cheap Indian content writing factories. Instead:
- You’ll find detailed commentaries about the science behind blister formation, prevention strategies and wound healing physiology.
- You’ll find balanced accounts and thorough discussions that weigh up the pros and cons of all the different blister management interventions.
- And you’ll find articles that are factual and impartial as I can make them, whilst actually having an opinion. An opinion based on:
- A 12 year focus on all things friction blisters of the feet
- My own blister susceptibility and history
- My 27-year occupation as a podiatrist
- And my voluntary blister care work at multiday ultramarathons.
The overarching function of this site to be as helpful as possible. Not token help, I mean real-world helpful advice and truly useful insights. It aims to educate you and help you find the best way forward for your circumstances. In fact, you’ll find yourself approaching your blisters from a different angle. I like to call it an inside-out approach.
Taking An Inside-Out Approach
I like to take an inside-out approach to foot blisters. This includes the unavoidable movement of bones under the skin. Bone movement is inextricably a part of blister development. An inside-out approach involves an understanding of foot structure and function. That’s because structure and function have direct relevance to blisters at each anatomical location. Neglect this and you’ll never understand blister prevention.
