Today, we’re going to discuss the cuboid bone, which runners should be aware of. Everyone is aware that runners’ feet experience frequent damage. The amount of miles we log may have an impact on the health of our feet, and when they begin to suffer, it can be difficult to make them feel better (especially if we are guilty of pushing through the pain). Running may harm your foot in a variety of ways, such as straining your plantar fascia and experiencing heel pain. You could take a funny stride andtwist your ankle. And repeated contact on the same spot might cause a stress fracture.
We are all aware of how often runners get injured. There are a few useful strategies to lessen the discomfort associated with this activity. This includes studies that support the idea that keeping to a program might keep you running more comfortably. And even research that suggests one unconventional strategy that may reduce your chance of running injuries by up to 39%!
Running enthusiasts should cross-train. It may help you avoid injuries by strengthening the muscles that sustain your runs. Moreover, it may also assist you in training while you recover if you do get a running injury.
Unfortunately, physical activity may bring on acute injuries as well as chronic pain. This is especially true because I’ve seen exercise have a negative impact on my body over the years. I’ve dealt with heel pain and a variety of other issues that bring people into my clinic on a regular basis. And it seems that we are not the only ones who are affected by this.
Ignoring the health of your foot, ankle, and toes will come at a cost. Regular stretching and exercising of the feet and ankles increase the range of motion to provide the best support and avoid overuse injuries. Whether you are a weekend warrior, an avid runner, or mall walker adding foot and ankle workout routines is very important for the health of your foot. Weakness of the lower extremities leaves the feet susceptible to foot running injury, sore achilles tendon, achilles tendonitis, spraining, straining, and overuse injury. Foot and ankle exercises improve balance, joint flexibility, and strength.
Before starting any exercise, warm up with at least 5 minutes of low-impact activity such as walking. As you warm up, get into the foot exercises to prevent running injury or sore achilles tendon, and if you are not sure how to go about it or experience pain, contact a podiatrist.
