AUSSIE PODIATRIST DISCUSSES OVERUSE SYNDROMES

"THE MOST COMMON THING WE SEE IS THAT PEOPLE TRY TO DO TOO MUCH, TOO SOON.  THEY SET THEMSELVES A GOAL SUCH AS RUNNING A MARATHON OR HALF MARATHON, AND THEN TRY TO BUILD UP THEIR TRAINING TOO QUICKLY.  THIS LEADS TO INJURIES.  THE BONES, TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS TRY TO ADAPT TO THE NEW STRESSES BEING PUT ON THEM," SAYS PODIATRIST KENT SWEETING.

BLISTERS ARE COMMON IN NEW RUNNERS.  "THESE CAN BE DRAINED BY A STERILE NEEDLE.  ANTIBIOTIC CREAM AND A DRESING SHOULD BE APPLIED FOR 3 - 5 DAYS.  IF REDNESS OCCURS, A PODIATRIST OR CHIROPODIST SHOULD BE CONSULTED," SAYS PODIATRIST SWEETING.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS, CHIROPRACTORS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT IF YOU ARE HAVING PAIN OR SYMPTOMS IN YOU FEET THAT YOU CONSULT YOUR CHIROPODIST OR PODIATRIST.
