Protecting your feet from summer injuries
Injuries to your feet are more prevalent during the summer due to increased outdoor activities. This increases your chance of heel pain, muscle pain, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma, bursitis, Achilles tendinitis, runner’s knee, as well as several others.
To avoid injuries or alleviate pain you may consider custom orthotics or inserts that provide proper support for your arch and foot type. To ensure that you will be able to run, walk, and participate in athletic activities for many more years you need to make sure that there is enough support between your foot and any flat, hard surfaces. It is also important to seek the appropriate footwear for the activities that you are participating in. Ask for professional help to guarantee that you are putting the right thing on our feet!
