UK PODIATRIST STATES THAT LOWER WALKING SPEED MAY MEAN ARTHRITIS

 

PODIATRIST, DR. TONY REDMOND, SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOW AT ARTHRITIS UK AT THE UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS, STATES, DO YOU ZIP TO THE SHOPS FASTER THAN ROAD RUNNER?  IT'S A SIGN YOUR BODY IS FUNCTIONING WELL.  SOMEONE WHO IS YOUNG, FIT AND HEALTHY WILL, ON AVERAGE, WALK BETWEEN 1.2 AND 1.4 METERS PER SECOND.  BUT EVEN IF YOU HAVE RELATIVELY MILD ARTHRITIS OR OTHER ACHES AND PAINS, WALKING SPEEDS WILL START TO FALL OFF.  THOSE WITH ARTHRITIS TEND TO BE BELOW ONE METER A SECOND, OR IF REALLY BAD, 50 CM A SECOND."

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC ARE BIG ADVICATORS OF QUALITY EXERCISE AND WALKING IS A GOOD START FOR EVERYONE OF ALL AGES.  ALL OF MY EMPLOYEES ARE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE.  I ALWAYS SAY THAT YOU CAN'T TALK THE TALK IF YOU CAN'T WALK THE WALK.  YOU CAN'T SELL WHAT YOU DON'T OWN.  EXERCISE IS GOOD FOR THE BODY AND THE SOUL (SOLE).

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES QUALITY FOOT CARE AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.
