Warm weather gives us a great time to get ourselves up off the couch and get on our way to better health. Don’t let foot pain slow you down. Follow these helpful tips for your warm weather walks and enjoy the weather!
- Wear supportive shoes.
- Wear moisture wicking’ socks.
- Stretch muscles before and after your walk. If you’ve been inactive over the winter, don’t overdo it. Gradually work into a walking program.
- Walkers can frequently experience heel pain, especially if you’ve been inactive during the winter months. Often ibuprofen and daily stretching exercises can provide relief.
- If you experience pain in your heels or ankles make an appointment with our office for a proper evaluation.
