The New Year is time for resolutions and one of the most common ones is to start exercising more.
This is, of course, great news. However, start new workouts gradually: increase your stamina and the length of your workouts slowly to avoid overuse injuries such as stress fractures or tendon strains and sprains. Stretching your muscles before and after workouts also helps prevent these types of injuries.
Wear the right shoe and sock: wear well-fitting athletic shoes specifically designed for the exercise or sport. Shoes that don’t support the arch of your foot and provide cushion for the heel can cause pain, fatigue, incorrect technique and even lasting physical damage. Shoes that are too short or narrow can cause a number of painful problems.
The trained consultants at Foot Solutions will measure and assess your feet and gait, and advise you on the exact size and shape of exercise shoe and any necessary arch support for your unique feet. We carry a full range of exercise shoes, socks, arch supports and more. We are right in the centre of Richmond Upon Thames, easily accessible by the tube, train, bus or car.
