April is Foot Health Month!

Just because our feet are the farthest from our range of vision does not mean we neglect its importance.  In fact, an average adult walks about approximately 100,000 miles in their lifetime. Along with our spine, our feet are essential in keeping us mobile and independent to do all the things we need to do in a given day.  If a minor or major injury occurs, we are not only affected physically, but mentally, and economically.Unfortunately, the most common foot injuries occur with women due to the constant wearing of high heels. Check out my blog on foot health and the science behind high heels and back pain.  Also, please share this article widely to your family and friends who are suffering from foot and back pain! Access the article from the link below.

Did you know that the South Pasadena Pain Relief Center is also an art gallery? We are proud to invite and host local artists, writers, practitioners, etc who want to promote their work through our “Move the Community Series.” We partner with these local movers and shakers to launch their work and/or ideas to the public because they want to make the world a better place.  The South Pasadena Pain Relief Center is currently hosting “Celebrate Everyday Movements,” a series of inspiring and beautiful works of local artist Shiho Nakaza.  Shiho has sketched and painted places all over the world, but she inspires us with her beautiful series the city of Los Angeles and Angelenos! All artwork are for sale at the office, so don’t forget to walk around and check them out! If you like something you see, you can buy it on the spot and take them home. Many of Shiho’s pieces have been already been bought and we are happy to see her art become conversation pieces at someone’s home. Read all about Shiho Nakaza, her work and our ongoing exhibits, health and wellness workshops from my wife Rachel’s blog, “If Good is Hungry.”
