YAKIMA, WA’S FAVORITE PODIATRISTS OFFER FOUR HELPFUL TIPS FOR THE AVID RUNNER THIS SUMMER

5At Cascade Foot And Ankle, our Yakima, WA podiatrists want to make sure that runners and joggers are fully prepared to avoid injuries and other maladies that may arise when you begin any exercise program. Some of the most common foot problems associated with jogging or running that your podiatrists in Yakima, WA treat include blisters, corns, calluses, athlete’s foot, shin splints, Achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis. Most can be avoided with proper foot hygiene; clean socks, dry & powdered feet, proper fitting shoes.Yakima podiatrists recommend several tips for runners to keep in mind this summer to help prevent the most common injuries.

  • Choose proper fitting running shoes – Podiatrists encourage you to shop at a shoe store that caters to runners and joggers, from professionals trained to know exactly what types of running/jogging shoes you’ll need. Be sure your shoes are not to tight, not to loose, to help prevent toe deformities, blisters, or bunions. And be sure to replace your shoes at regular intervals; your sales person can inform you of the proper mileage your shoes may be expected to attain.
  • Warm up & and stretch – Proper stretching and warm ups prime the muscles and ligaments and tendons for exercise. Cold, stiff muscles are more likely to get hurt, so warm up for five minutes and then stretch, paying special attention to the calves, hamstrings, quads and feet.
  • Progress slowly into your routine – Take it slow to begin with, as too much too soon may lead to stressed feet and muscles.
  • Mix up your exercise routine – Consider swimming, cycling, or other cardio activities, to decrease the risk of injuries from hitting the trails or pavement and help to contribute to your overall health.
  • Visit Cascade Foot And Ankle – We can help get rid of corns and calluses, provide cortisone injections for heel spurs & more. If you’re already dealing with heel pain or arch pain, we may recommend proper custom orthotics, which are widely available over the counter.
