Running is an excellent form of exercise, but it can also be stressful on the feet. Below are three common afflictions that runners face:
- Tendonitis — Inflammation of the posterior tibial tendon causes pain in the foot’s inner arch, and even swelling through the ankle.
- Plantar Fasciitis — Inflamed tissue on the bottom of the foot triggers tenderness in the heel and often affects those with high or low arches.
- Stress Fracture — A tiny fracture in the metatarsal bones can occur with frequent running.
Proper footwear — including custom orthotics — will help you avoid injury and reach your fitness goals!
