Running Through the Pain
by Katerin on July 20, 2013
Now that is springtime and the weather is warmer, many people have laced up their running shoes and are hitting the streets, trails and tracks. While running is great exercise and can be an excellent way to burn off both calories and stress, it is also responsible for many injuries to the feet, ankles and knees. Dr. Daniel Geller, DPM of Empire State Orthopaedics held a presentation on April 19th at The Running Company in Ridgewood, NJ to explain some of the more common inuries such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, gout and compressed nerves. With a proper plan and equipment, runners can lower their chances of sustaining an injury. This would include gradually building up the number of miles run when training for a 10K or a marathon, ensuring adequate rest between running sessions, cross-training to strengthen other muscles that help support the feet and wearing properly fit running shoes. Retailers such as The Running company can use techology and experience to help consumers choose the running shoe that will offer them the right level of support.
