Common running injuries can keep you out of the race, but there is help available. There are many conservative treatments that address Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis—two of the most common. While blisters are typically resolved at home with time and care, if you notice signs of infection, it’s best to seek help right away. Ankle sprains and stress fractures may not seem serious, but continuing with your workout can lead to ongoing, chronic pain that could sideline you permanently. Seek treatment for any foot pain that doesn’t resolve in a day or two.
Don’t take matters into your own hands. Instead of waiting to see if your feet feel better on their own, make an appointment for an evaluation with Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS.
