Hi Reader,

It's December! This is a time for families and friends to gather and enjoy fun-filled activities together — be it skiing, snowboarding, ice skating or making snow angels (watch out for frostbite!). For us folks in Australia, we love to whack on a barbie, enjoy some backyard cricket and finish each day with a walk at sunset.

This month we're providing you advice to help your patients enjoy the most wonderful time of the year. Hope you enjoy it!

Happy Christmas! 🎄

Blisters are inevitable!

“Blisters are inevitable in my sport / with my feet”

Your patients only think this because they haven’t yet matched the best possible prevention to their blister location. That’s why they need your expertise!

The point is, blisters are predictable. Here are telltale signs that indicate both current and imminent foot blisters.


Tennis Stars 🎾

Tennis is a blister-heavy sport.

Roger Federer, Maria Sharapova, Andy Murray, Marin Cilic and Hyeon Chung to name a few, have all suffered terrible, game-effecting foot blisters in grand slam finals or semi-finals.

Spenco 2nd Skin

Spenco 2nd Skin squares are used a lot by sports medics. On the surface of it, they look great. But it's worth looking a little deeper.
