After struggling for months to run without having pain, I realized that there might be something wrong with my feet. It just seemed like whenever I did any type of physical activity, I was burdened with stifling pain. It was annoying, but I knew that a podiatrist might be able to help. Sure enough, after meeting with a doctor, I learned more about what was causing the trouble. It turned out that I had pulled a tendon in my foot, which was causing all kinds of problems. This blog is all about getting your foot problems fixed once and for all.
The average runner takes between 150-170 steps per minute of running. For a marathoner, this translates to nearly 40,000 steps just to complete a single marathon. This why maintaining healthy feet can be the key to recovering from and preparing for, marathon. Your greatest resource for keeping your feet healthy is your local podiatrist.
Here are three procedures your podiatrist can give you to help keep your feet healthy for next marathon:
Laser Nail Treatment
Marathoning can be synonymous for ugly feet and toenails. This can be explained, again by the amount of steps you take every day you race or train. When your foot strikes the ground your foot will slide forward in your shoe. This sliding motion causes your toes to hit the front of your shoe's toe box, which can cause them to become damaged and disfigured. Overtime, these impacts can create gnarled toenails that become painfully ingrown.
Corrective Custom Orthotics
Your feet are designed to run. Unfortunately, the shoes you need to protect your feet while you run can weaken your feet. When the muscles in your feet weaken and atrophy, you become more susceptible to foot injuries.
Your foot contains 26 bones and over 100 muscles. Each of these muscles, like any other muscle group in your body, require exercise to stay strong. Since no medical professional studies the feet more closely than a podiatrist, you can have them design a workout routine for your feet.
