Avoiding Injuries: Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is a condition that typically occurs for runners and causes intense pain in the heel first thing in the morning or after long periods of standing. The condition results from inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes and runs across the bottom of the foot. This problem is a very common occurrence for people who are obese as well as people who regularly wear shoes that are not the right fit for their feet (reference our last blog post for more information on choosing the right sneakers for your feet!).

When it comes to foot health, there are several things to keep in mind to stay healthy. First of all, warm up before each period of exercise-stretching is key! This limbers muscles and prepares you for a full exercise regime. Next, plan on building to the level of exercise you choose to tackle rather than going from no exercise to rigid and complex routines, take it slow! Also, choose the right equipment. In this case, the most important piece of equipment is a pair of athletic shoes that fit your feet appropriately and are made for the type of exercise you plan on doing most. Replace your shoes regularly when the heel begins to wear out. Minimize time spent running hills or over uneven surfaces, as this increases the risk of injury. Finally, listen to what your body is telling you. When your feet begin to feel strained, that is usually too late. If there is a ‘different’ or tired feeling to your feet, the next step is pain and issues that may require a doctor’s attention.

Some other injuries that can occur when exercising are heel spurs or toenail injuries, stress fractures, mid-foot pain and sprains. No matter what the injury, the chances can be minimized with proper preparation and the decision to be responsible about your exercise routine. Be prepared and you can avoid injury.
