Podiatrists and the Everyday Runner

Foot and lower leg pains are dealt with by experienced and amateur runners alike. But where do podiatrists fit in this equation? With a wide range of knowledge, podiatrists can be helpful for runners of all levels.

Muscle tightness, old injuries and footwear choices are just some of the factors that can mean the difference between pain free running and niggles here and there. A podiatrist can assess these risk factors and work out a plan to address them! Additionally podiatrists can analyse your biomechanics (the way you run) to determine potential problems and help prevent them from happening.

If you’re a running newbie or someone looking to reduce injuries with your current load a podiatry visit may be the next step! Call our clinic on (07) 3823 5423 to book an appointment with one of our podiatrists.
