PODIATRIST STATES THAT TRANSITION INTO SUMMER SHOES CAN CAUSE FOOT PROBLEMS
posted: Jun 12, 2014.
Podiatrist, Dr. Damien Lucius states, "the most common complaints in the spring and early summer are plantar fasciitis and Achilles pain caused from people going right from shoes with cushions and heels to flip flops and bare feet. Changing in to summer footwear should be a transition by wearing the flatter shoes for a couple of hours a day over a few weeks. If plantar fasciitis occurs, rolling the foot back and forth over a tennis ball can help resolve it."
