The other day I received a copy of John Vonhof’s latest edition of Fixing Your Feet: Injury Prevention and Treatments for Athletes. For years, Tamarack Habilitation Technologies has consulted with John on the company’s latest advancements with its blister prevention & relief product, ENGO Blister Prevention Patches. John’s advice and continued testing of our product has been a blessing. The foot care advice and product recommendations in his book are all based on over 31 years of experience – both as an athlete and medical personnel at charity events and adventure races around the globe. Fixing Your Feet is highly recommended to athletes and people responsible for caring for their feet.
The 5th edition of Fixing Your Feet is overflowing with over 360 pages of information about foot care treatment and product recommendations. It includes dozens of athlete and physician testimonials and experiences that support the advice that John shares in his book.
