This year, an in-depth article in the Washington Post, “Why NBA Players Love Pedicures,” quotes thepresident of the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine and the team podiatrist for theWashington Wizards, Howard Osterman:
“Taking care of their feet is one of the most important things these guys can do. There was a stigma for along time where guys didn’t go get pedicures, and then guys like Shaq and Dwyane Wade and LeBron,they made it popular. And you know what? If the stars can do it, then it’s okay. So, it’s really gotten better.”
Athletes are susceptible to having serious problems with calluses and nails, including ingrown nails, dueto the heavy use of feet and toes in athletic activities. Athletes are often embarrassed about theappearance of their feet, and reluctant to seek professional help. They should follow the example of formerNBA great Shaquille O’Neil and get help.
G+P owner Jacqueline Fay says she is excited about her new Athletic Pedicures “Fitness and athletics arehuge parts of the Princeton lifestyle, which means there are hundreds of men and women who could enjoybetter foot health and athletic performance if they would give it a try,” said Fay.
