For those looking to lose weight or stay in shape, running is an activity most of us consider. Sticking to a consistent running schedule can keep off those unwanted extra kilos. Unfortunately, running also has an effect on your feet. The constant pounding on hard surfaces can lead to a variety of problems with not just the feet but also with the ankles, knees and lower back. When you are experiencing these types of pain, it is best to call an nearby Ayr podiatrist that can properly treat the injury.
Foundation Podiatry, based in Townsvillie, deals with running injuries quite frequently. The first thing that we want to do is to evaluate a patient’s biomechanics. Most people do not know whether they run correctly or not. With state-of-the-art equipment, we are the Ayr podiatrist that takes the time to analyse an individual’s posture, balance and gait. There may be an issue with a patient’s biomechanics that is the underlying cause of the pain.
After examining a patient’s biomechanics, our goal is to treat injuries that are the result of abuse or overuse, and also to improve that patient’s biomechanics to minimise the reoccurrence of any previous injury. Most sports podiatrists will work only to treat injuries as they occur, however, Foundation Podiatry works proactively to prevent future injuries from occurring.
