You've been running in all kinds of conditions this summer including the heat wave that descended on Seattle a few weeks ago. Up to this point you've been really excited about running your next race. You've been pretty pain free, up until now.
However, this morning you woke up at 6am to do your morning run and whammo--when your feet hit the floor you knew you were in trouble.
You've had heel pain before and you've been able to deal with it by icing, stretching, and by wearing a pair of Superfeet. But somehow this feels much worse. You're worried because you know you might need orthotics and you know they will take time to make. You really can't afford to stop training now, so what are you going to do?
Luckily our Seattle podiatry office can provide immediate relief for runners with heel pain.
At the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City we offer a product called Foot Balance. It's molded to your foot without the cost and time it takes to make prescriptive orthotics. This product is designed to last 6-12 months.
Of course preventing foot pain is the best solution, but if you have dodgy foot mechanics and you're a runner you're going to need a more permanent solution down the road to ensure your heel pain doesn't reoccur.
But for now we'd love to help you get back on your feet to run that race.
Call us today at 206-368-7000 for an appointment, often same day. You can also request an appointment online.
