WHEN YOUR FOOT HITS THE GROUND EVERYTHING CHANGES

What is something that we all do every morning– Get up and start walking. Have you ever thought about the work your feet do every day?
The foot is the base of support of your entire body, which is comparatively massive in size to your feet. Your feet propel you to walk or run and they act like shock absorbers—the flexibility of the foot helps to reduce the effects of impact when the foot hits the ground. Your feet are one of the most necessary parts of the body and we mindlessly abuse them until we are injured or in pain. The average person walks approximately 2,000 miles a year—give your feet a break!
People with foot pain may have one of these conditions:
• Plantar fasciitis
• Tendinitis
• Heel Spurs
• Ankle injuries
How Can Physical Therapy Help
A physical therapist will identify what is causing your pain or injury. Using biomechanical and neuromuscular assessments, the physical therapists at Touchstone PT & Wellness will create a plan that will quickly get you back on your “feet.”
We will identify:
• Your foot type—you may have a flat foot or high arch.
• How your foot type affects the way your leg and body move.
By having this information our team can determine if you need strengthening exercises, flexibility training, improved balance, or, in some cases, orthotics or bracing. Call us today to so you can back on your FEET!
