Running And Foot Pain

Runners quite often experience sore feet. This soreness may develop as a result of long distance running. If you already suffer from ankle tendonitis or heel spurs, you can aggravate your foot pain by continuing to run on a regular basis. There are a number of things that an individual can do to help prevent pain when running as follows.

  • wear the correct and good fitting running shoes
  • be aware of your running technique
  • avoid lifting your feet too high when running
  • wear a bandage for support around your foot and/or ankle when running
  • maintain your ideal weight
  • This one people tend to forget, don’t overdo it

Achy feet caused by running can be easily treated if you immediately take proper measures. One of the first things that you must do when experiencing foot pain when running is give your muscles the time they need to heal. Cut back your miles and implement walking in between your running program.

Remember, if muscles are not given time to repair, you may be causing more damage to your foot and legs. If pain persists, consult a doctor. He/she may prescribe anti-inflammatory medication or give advice as to what you can do without medication. Ice helps decrease inflammation and promotes healing, so you can wrap ice in a cloth and apply it to the bottom of your foot after running.
