Are you an avid runner? Do you participate in sports activities frequently? If so, you are probably no stranger to foot pain and injuries involving your feet and legs. Fortunately, our top Brooklyn podiatrist, Dr. Howard Dinowitz, is here to help you and give you the treatment you need to get through these issues and get back to being active the way you love to. One of the most common pains associated with running is called runner’s knee. Runner’s knee develops from your foot constantly rolling in and down as you run. Another common pain that runners experience is referred to as shin splints. Shin splints can occur from running on hard surfaces, running too often, and other common mistakes that runners make. Running can also lead to serious injury if you are not training carefully and properly. Many people damage their arches because of running without footwear that adequately supports the arches of their feet. Another common running injury is called heel spurs. Heel spurs typically develop from not stretching adequately before running. Our Brooklyn podiatrist also often sees patients who are suffering from a stress fracture due to overtraining. As you can see, there is the potential for many serious issues to arise from running. However, this does not mean that Dr. Dinowitz discourages running in general. Instead, we encourage our patients to train under the advisement of a professional like our Brooklyn podiatrist. We can show you the stretches you need to utilize in order to prevent injury, and make recommendations for the shoes you should wear while running to increase your comfort and decrease aches and pains after your run.
