Did you know that undiagnosed foot and ankle problems can lead to excessive weight gain? Think about it! If you spend all day at work and come home to aching feet, the last thing you want to do is start exercising. High-impact cardio workouts trends have made exercising even more uncomfortable. Here’s the truth of the matter: the pain you’re experiencing isn’t normal, and you don’t have to just ‘deal’ with it. Just as importantly - if and when you do exercise, it doesn’t have to be high-impact to benefit you! 

Continuing to follow a high-impact exercise routine, or any routine that is too demanding, can take an already painful situation and make it worse. Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, fallen arches, bunions - these are all only going to become more problematic when they’re left unaddressed by a foot doctor.

Considering that one in three people experience foot or ankle pain in the United States alone, these next steps are important to consider:

  • Schedule an appointment with Dr. Brad Toll

  • Be upfront and honest about the aches and pains you experience

  • Ask Dr. Toll about what you can do at home for pain-free stretches and exercise

  • Start slow and steady when you do start exercising

  • Let Dr. Toll know about any additional problems

  • Stop activities if it becomes increasingly painful or strenuous

These are all important steps to think about when becoming active, but none are more important than being evaluated by your podiatrist first. Addressing, diagnosing, and treating issues that make it difficult or uncomfortable to be active are important before starting any new routine.
