Podiatrists debunk 12 feet myths

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 that bunions are not caused by wearing heels — in fact, they're 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 a costar on 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.
