How close to my race day should I wait to get my foot pain checked?

don't wait to treat your houston running injuryI treat many types of runners in my Houston sports podiatry office. These include weekend warriors, serious high school and college athletes, to marathon runners, ultra-marathon runners, and Ironman triathletes. It consistently amazes me how often people come in just before their race, after months of training in pain, to get a quick fix.

 

One of the jobs that I take very seriously is to help my patients meet and exceed their goals. The last thing I want to do is to tell a runner that he can't run. There are times when it is unavoidable. The sooner you come into our office after you begin to notice pain, the more likely it is that you will not have a significant interruption in training. The longer you wait, the worse the running injury becomes and the more time is needed to treat your injury properly.

 

If you have any pain when you are running, the time to come into the office is now. Let Dr. Schneider evaluate your injury and make recommendations to treat the pain and get you back to running. Contact Tanglewood Foot Specialists today! Waiting will only make your injury worse.
