Getting Back on Your Feet

Many of us are adapting to different daily routines. Some work more than ever, others found a new work-life balance allowing them to better focus more on their personal well-being. Creating new workout routines to stay active has become a common trend not only for people working out on a regular basis. We want you to know we are still available if you have any questions on how to get back on your feet – literally.

Are you new to running and started to experience a burning sensation or numbness? This may be caused by incorrectly sized shoes or shoes that are not made for running. Inform yourself about appropriate gear prior to starting a new workout to genuinely enjoy your new hobby. The same applies to any other sport, so don’t overcommit to too many new activities since each requires specialized, and potentially expensive, equipment.

If any of your new workout routines still cause any foot pain, we recommend to first check for ingrown toenails.  These are often caused by injuries, infections, improper trimming, or excessive pressure on the toes. We provide quick evaluations and treatments ranging from chemical to surgical.

Even if you are not making any changes to your daily routine, now may be a good time to assess your fitness goals and to address any foot concerns that didn’t seem relevant just a couple of months ago. A quick treatment may save you much trouble down the road when damage cannot be reversed that easily anymore. Check out the links below for more information on some common foot issues:

Keep in mind that healthy feet will also help with daily activities. They allow you to spend time at the lake, wear your favorite high heels, get your weekly grocery shopping done, and be active with your friends and family.
