If you’re a runner, the arrival of spring means it’s race season. Whether you’re getting ready to run your first 5k/10k/half-marathon/marathon, or just starting your training for a race in the fall, injuries can plague even the most advanced runners.
The most common foot injuries that can sideline your training are due to quick or improper warm-up, overuse, intense workouts, improper footwear, or transferring your training to very hard surfaces. Luckily, there are treatments for the injuries listed above that can have you back on your feet, ready to run your race.
Proper training and preparation for a race is vital to helping you reach your goal, injury-free. Don’t set yourself back and end up on the injured-reserve list. If you have questions about a foot injury, prevention tips, or treatment options, please don’t hesitate to call our office.
