AUSSIE PODIATRIST WRITES "FOOT SURVIVAL GUIDE" FOR FEMALE RUNNERS

"A DAY AT THE RACES SHOULDN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO SUFFER FROM SORE FEET," SAYS PODIATRIST LEAH WATERS, WHO RECENTLY WROTE A GUIDE TO HELP WOMEN PREPARE THEIR FEET FOR THE RACING CARNIVAL COMING UP AT FLEMINGTON NEXT WEEK.  WATERS SAYS "THAT MANY OF THE WOMEN WHO RACE, OFTEN END UP WITH SORE FEET FROM BAD SHOE CHOICES, POOR FOOT PREPARATION, OR EXISTING FOOT PROBLEMS THEY HAVEN'T ATTENDED TO.  THIS IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF THEM WALKING OUT OF THE RACES BAREFOOT..NOT A CLASSY SIGHT!"

"IT'S NOT A GOOD LOOK AND YOU ARE ALSO AT RISK OF CUTTING YOUR FEET ON SHARP OBJECTS OR GLASS", ADDS PODIATRIST WATERS, WHO SUGGESTS "THAT WHEN YOU RACE, MAKE SURE YOU SNEAK A PAIR OF FLEXIBLE FLATS INTO YOUR CLUTCH, JUST TO BE ON THE SAFE SIDE."

AT OUR FOOT CLINIC WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS TO MOST OF OUR PATIENTS.  MOST PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC FAULT CALLED OVERPRONATION WHICH AFFECTS YOUR POSTURE ALL THE WAY UP TO YOUR NECK.  THEY ARE PREVENTATIVE AND DISTRIBUTE YOUR WEIGHT EVENLY OVER THE ENTIRE FOOT WHILE INCREASING YOUR PERFORMANCE FROM EVERYTHING FROM WALKING TO ACTIVE SPORTS.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. HARDY AND MARZ HARDY, D.Ch., B.Sc., PODIATRIC MEDICINE, TORONTO CHIROPODIST AND TORONTO FOOT SPECIALIST AND THE TEAM FROM ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
