Been playing hard all summer? Or are you a weekend warrior? Or does your work just destroy your feet? If you are having pain during your activities or when just walking around barefoot, it’s a great time to take stock of any overuse injuries.
“No pain, no gain…right? Wrong! If foot or ankle pain is sharp or shooting, that’s not normal. When a pain is there day after day, you should start considering the presence of an overuse injury. These types of injuries can be insidious (gradual and cumulative).
Lots of folks say, “I thought the pain would just get better on its own.” Unfortunately, sometimes the pain doesn’t go away, and denial of an overuse injury can lead to increased pain, loss of function, time off from work and play activities, or even catastrophic injury. The first step for treating a pain is to recognize you might need help. That’s what we doctors are here for.
