Nobody wants to deal with a foot injury. Sometimes an injury cannot be avoided, like when it is the result of an accident, for example. However, there are certain things you can do to minimize your risk. In this blog, we will look at two tips to help you minimize the risk for foot injuries.
Pick the right shoes
Everybody has a different type of foot, and all shoes aren’t going to work well for every person. This is why it is extremely important to make sure you are choosing a shoe that is a perfect fit for your specific type of foot. This may take some searching to find the best shoe. Although you may prefer a certain style or brand, open your search to other styles and brands to ensure that you are truly getting the best shoe for your unique foot type. While this is important for your daily shoe, it is absolutely essential for your athletic shoe. Take the time to get fitted and to try as many athletic shoes as possible. When you are exercising or participating in a sport, you are putting a high level of stress on your feet. Be sure to get a shoe that will help to minimize this stress and you will minimize your risk for injury.
Listen to your body
It can be tempting to try and work through a minor injury. But this is a dangerous gamble, especially when it comes to foot and ankle injuries. These types of injuries are especially fragile, and the risk for re-injury is high. Listen to your body, and visit your Tuscon podiatrist as soon as you suspect something is wrong.
