Runners have two very important pieces of equipment – their feet. Whether you are walking a 5k or training for a marathon, you need healthy feet to train and race. If you are a runner or triathlete experiencing foot or lower leg pain, you should see a podiatrist. Don’t wait for your running injury to stop you from running. Heel pain, Achilles pain, shin splints, IT band issues, hip pain – these are all running related injuries that can stem from the feet. We look at your mechanics to make sure you are running and walking as efficiently as possible. We do a comprehensive gait analysis where we watch you walk to examine the phases of your stride and identify any inefficiencies. Custom orthotics are often a great way to keep you running without extended time off. Every situation is different, so call us today at 713-785-7881 for more information or to make an appointment.
