Resting After a Win - Longhorns Send the Huskers Packing

With Nebraska's impending move to the Big 10, this would be last time the Husker's could attempt to get a conference win in Texas. The last few weeks of football have been tough here in Austin. The rest of the football world was looking at us as underdogs against the number 5 ranked Nebraska team. It was pretty obvious that Mack Brown and the Longhorn players didn't pay any mind to all that talk as they prepared for this weekend's game.

Every member of the UT team put forth the effort to bring home the win. Whether it was Garrett Gilbert picking up yards running, or the defense limiting Nebraska to less than half their average yards, the Longhorns won the game on the ground. Football cleats are especially designed for the traction and durability needed on play on the field, but it is those players feet that must stand up to the running game every Saturday. With over 200 rushing yards collected in this weekend's win, those players' feet need some TLC to optimize their play rest of the season. Key things such as applying heat and massaging your feet will increases the circulation and allow their body to bath the muscles in tendons in nutrition and healing growth factors.

After a long day of walking, your feet could also benefit from the same therapy athletes apply. Rest, stretching, and massaging are all things that can help your feet avoid and prevent injury. The Longhorn players benefit from having a team staff to provide the right physical therapy and physician care. You don't have to be a college athlete to give your feet similar care. Take the time after a long day on your feet to rest and massage them, and be sure to visit AFAS on the first sign of pain or damage.

Until next time, keep those feet happy and healthy Austin! Hook ‘em horns!
