All runners just want to keep running. Your Houston Podiatrist can help!Runners have one desire...to keep running. In fact most runners delay coming to our Houston podiatry office because they are afraid that I'll tell them to stop running. The problem with that reasoning is that if they came sooner, before the problem became unbearable, I probably wouldn't have told them to stop running...but now I have to.

There are of course some circumstances where you do absolutely have to take a break from running. These include stress fractures, fractures, tendon ruptures, and severe sprains. Continuing to run on these injuries is a recipe for disaster! The injury will worsen, possibly requiring surgery to repair and correct

When it comes to overuse running injuries, such as shin splints, heel pain, and Achilles tendonitis, I don't often have you stop running. It is very important, however, that you come in as soon as possible. If the injury becomes worse, there is a greater chance that you'll have to take a break from running.

If you are experiencing foot or ankle pain that is worse when you are running, call Tanglewood Foot Specialists in Houston. Dr. Andrew Schneider will perform a comprehensive evaluation and recommend the best treatment to get you running pain-free.
