Newly designed for 2010 the syncroGuide III offers the most stable platform imaginable for proper balance and stride. Many sprains and tendon tears are caused by rolling over your ankle. The syncroGuide III offers excellent motion control, arch support and cushioning your muscles and joints will thank you for!

One way to prepare for your morning walk or run is by way of preemptive strike against muscle tiredness and tendon pain. I've found that by using Topricin Foot Therapy Creme before I head out, I am kink free for my walk and able to fully stretch when I take a break.
This is a Homeopathic formula which is recommended by doctors and chiropractors for arch pain, ankle swelling and sports injuries. It does work extremely well and Topricin has no unpleasant odor or greasy feel. It quickly absorbs completely into the skin so you can be on your way. Available at Whole Foods and Wegman's.
