Taking Care Of Your Feet
Sports and Your Feet
Organized sports can be both beneficial and devastating to your feet. If you have an existing foot problem, contact our office first.
Here are a few tips for the major kinds of sports:
If you don't prepare properly and exercise good technique, you can injure your lower extremities, including your feet. If you are a casual weekend player, take it slow before jumping right into a game. Baseball and softball involve quick starts and stops, so it's important to loosen up before the game to avoid muscle strain.
Cyclin Cycling g is a very effective form of fitness that can improve your cardiovascular health.
When seated on a bike with hands on the handlebars, the hands, shoulders, and front axle should all be in line. If a cyclist's knees hurt after a long ride, for example, he may be served well by prescription orthotic shoe inserts.
Amateur and professional tennis players alike are prone to injuries of the foot and ankle, both of which suffer from repeated lateral motions and quick stopping and starting.
Common tennis injuries include ankle sprains, stress fractures, plantar fasciitis, and tennis toe. If you experience recurring or persistent pain, contact our office.
