how to treat and prevent running injuriesWhether you run around Green Lake or challenge yourself with marathons, you know that keeping your feet healthy is the key to keep doing what you love.

My job as your podiatrist is to eliminate your foot pain and help you learn to avoid it in the future.

Here are some of the most common foot conditions we treat at the Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City.

Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis

Plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis are the most common foot problems in runners. That’s because running places a lot of stress on the plantar fascia, the ligament that runs from your heel to your toe on the bottom of your foot. This is the structure that gets inflamed and causes pain. To learn more about how our office treats these conditions check out the following information.

Morton’s Neuroma

If you feel pain between the 3rd and 4th toes, you most likely have Morton’s neuroma. Excessive force on the ball of the foot increases the likelihood of developing this condition. Learn how Morton’s Neuroma is treated here.


Bunions can cause lots of pain in runners and running can also increase the risk for their development. Runners with flat feet or who pronate are at higher risk for developing a bunion. Learn about the treatment for bunions and some ways you can ease the pain of running with bunions.
