Most running and sports pains and problems other than ballistic injuries (sprains and fractures) fall under the heading of overuse or repetitive microtrauma syndromes.
Plantar fascitis, heel pain, arch pain, neuroma pain, metatarsalgia, shin splints, knee, hip and lower back pains all involve biomechancial faults and pathology that when repeated over and over add up to a clinical event that brings the athlete or weekend warrior to LifeStyle Podiatry for care.
Sports problems start innocently and then become worse and worse. Over the counter and home remedies often alleviate the problem (as does stopping the activity) but if the problems are not responsive or intensify, professionally there is usually a conservative, non invasive cure that returns the disabled athlete back to performing better than ever. At LifeStyle Podiatry, Functional Foot TypingTM exposes the underlying biomechanical pathology that has led to the running or sports problems and the focused, custom care which includes Foot CentringsTM, offer cutting edge treatment not available elsewhere.
