As temperatures rise, we tend to want to go outside and get active. However, our feet and ankles can be more prone to stress and injury after winter inactivity. To avoid common injuries like ankle strain and shin splints, follow these simple preventative steps:
- Increase workouts gradually
- Warm-up and stretch-out
- Wear supportive activity-appropriate footwear
Even the most experienced athletes are vulnerable to injury. Schedule an appointment at any of our 4 locations for guidance on footwear, training, stretching, and other tips on avoiding injury. Our podiatrists are not only here to help recover from injuries but to prevent them as well.

Springtime Success Plan
In a recent poll, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) claims that “39% of American Adults would exercise more if their feet didn’t hurt.”
The APMA’s president R. Daniel Davis, DPM has called attention to the fact that as the warm weather returns, many return to exercise. Frequently, we push ourselves too far too fast and end up injured. That’s why it’s so important to set a seasonal plan with your podiatrist.
Schedule an Appointment today and the podiatrists at Advanced Foot & Ankle will help you develop a plan for success – get active and get healthy this Spring!
