Rebecca Rushton is a podiatrist from down-under in Australia. She has championed the important of blister prevention and I have shared about her in past blog posts. Her website, BlisterPrevention.com.au is a wealth of information on the subject.
In an effort to resolver her own blister problems, Rebecca has investigated podiatry and sport publications, diabetic foot disease and prosthetic limb skin management, the field of tribology (the study of friction and wear), and military research. These have led her to write a number of publications about blister management, and continually address it in her blog.
Her latest work is a book and ebook, The Blister Prone Athlete’s Guide to Preventing Foot Blisters: Insider Tips to Take You From Blister Victim to Champion. These are available through Amazon – and for a limited time, the ebook version is available for FREE through Amazon’s Kindle. Here’s the link for the free ebook. Get it soon because after five days, it reverts back to normal prices. You can also get a print copy of the book to have in your foot care kit and share with your crews.
The 75-page book discusses blister formation and then tackles the causes and prevention of blisters on the most common areas of the foot: heels, the arch, the ball of the foot, and toes. The content is easy to understand and follow.
Rebecca is a friend and I highly recommend her book. I’d also suggest visiting her BlisterPrevention.com.au website and subscribing to her email updates.
