We all have experienced pain and discomfort with our feet, that feeling of pain and extreme discomfort from a simple blister to suffering with some of the more serious foot condtions such as Plantar faciitis, achilles tendonitis, morton’s neuroma,
It is only when we experience foot pain and discomfort that we really start to appreciate just how important our feet really are.
We are all gulity of taken our feet so much for granted, they’re just there at the end of our legs, having to put up everday with so many challenges, walking, standing, running, carrying around our body weight. At the start of the day we squeeze them into really tight fitting shoes, with really narrow toeboxes, sometimes with unnaturally elevated heels, to the flat shoes with such little support to the muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones of the feet.
While our poor feet have to suffer with those indignities, we then expect them to take hundreds of tons of force impact during the average day of walking. All that pounding really helps to explain why feet are the body part must likely to get injured.
Our feet should never hurt, ever, it is up to each and everyone one of us to look after our feet,
There is so much we can do that wil help improve the condtion of our feet and help prevent foot injury.
For example by making changes to the type of shoes we wear, we can allow our feet feet to walk in a natural gait, that one change we make can greatly reduce the risk of foot injuries.
Wider toe boxes will help to reduce bunions, give more room to the toes, helping to prevent nerve compression, to help protect the achilles tendon from shortening, alternate heel heights regularly.
Yes there will be times when we will suffer with foot pain and condtions that has been caused with other issues out of our control, but it is so important that once we start to feel foot pain, that we have it assesed and treated as soon as possible.
Sharp pain felt in the heel or arch of the foot will only worsen overtime if left untreated.
Unfortunatley the vast majority of us will continue to suffer in pain and discomfort hoping that the pain we are feeling will just like magic, suddenly vanish. It seldom if ever does, if foot pain is not effectively treated, the
condtion may become even more serious, greatly increading both treatment and recovery time.
Our feet have thousands of nerve endings, so they are highly sensitive, so they will very quickly let us know when something is wrong.
Never ignore foot pain, have it treated as soon as possible, there is no need to continue suffering pain and discomfort.
Our feet are so important to each and everyone of us, please look after them.
