The list of tips for sore feet is not complete without mentioning the butt muscles. This group of muscles may be the laziest in the entire body. When the butt muscles become weak, the entire leg is affected, including the feet. Everything starts to turn inward. The thigh bone rotates inward causing "knock-knees." The ankles turn inward to the point that the arch of the foot can become plastered to the ground. This misalignment of the leg leads to a chain reaction of chronic pain.
Anyone with back, hip, knee, ankle, or foot pain should remember to strengthen the butt muscles. The easiest and most practical way to improve strength in the buttocks is to stand on one leg.

An additional implant may or may not be required underneath your own tissue to create the size of breast you desire. The scar is conveniently concealed in the buttock crease.
Buttock crease transfer surgery is technically difficult because blood vessels that keep the tissue alive must be cut and reconnected—with the aid of a microscope—to a new blood supply on the chest. The procedure can take up to twelve hours. If the newly connected blood vessels are damaged, the transferred tissue may not survive. In this case, the transferred tissue mus...
