The London marathon is over. Thousands of people will be suffering and needing foot care from the effects of the 26 intense mile run you all endured for good causes.
It’s now time to think about you, and more importantly think about your feet!.
You may be suffering from heel pain (plantar fasciitis) bone spurs, hammer toes, blisters, leg and hip issues. All of these can be caused by improper foot plants while competing. Without proper treatment these painful issues can result in long term damage. This may result in your days of running and regular exercise grinding to a stop.
Foot Care is Important
The feet are one of the most important areas of the body, think of it like this.
If you erect a building, be it an outhouse or a multi-story. What comes first, what will make that building incorruptible?
Your feet are your foundations. Without care they can cause injury further up the body, just as a building will fall without firm and even “footings”.
There are many case studies where years of constant back, neck, knee and hip pain have been resolved by good podiatrist care. From one off treatments to orthoses. A trained podiatrist can root out the problem and resolve those continuous aches and pains.
Even the tiniest of blisters, left to build up can become hardened skin and affect your stride!
Minor Foot Care Issues
If you are lucky enough to have no issues with your feet, you may want to pop in for a single session to get them summer ready. Unsightly hard skin or embarrassing toenail problems can be treated quickly. Leaving your feet perfect for showing off.
Not only will your hard dry skin be removed and your toe nails will be clipped but you also receive the added bonus of advice on footwear. Your Podiatrist can read your feet like a Chiromancy can read your palm. So if you are wearing the wrong shoes, he or she will let you know the potential risk to different areas of your body.
