Feet, hips, and back. Here's what has helped the most - I have custom made orthotics that I got through my chiropractor. You can also get them from a podiatrist. These not only cushion and support your feet and arches, they keep your feet and legs aligned so you don't get so much hip and back pain as well. These are very different from the Dr. Scholls that you can buy off the shelves, they are made specifically for your feet. I usually wear Easy Spirit. I take out the original foot liners and put in my orthotics.

Okay, out on a limb here - for the Plantar Fasciitis and varicose veins, yoga! Many of the leg and foot stretches help keep your heels stretched so you don't get the fasciitis. There is a very simple exercise for varicose veins: Lie on your back with your... well... tush, up against the wall. Rest your legs straight up against the wall. It is very relaxing, and helps your leg veins, especially after being on your feet all day.
