A variety of injuries can occur as a result of partaking in activites such as running, martial arts, aerobics, kick boxing and other team sports. These include, but are not limited to, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, sesamoiditis, and ankle sprains.
Stretching is recommended for a minimum of 15 minutes before and after performing any exercise.
Properly fitting shoes are crucial to successful, injury-free exercise. Shoes should provide sufficient cushioning and shock absorption to compensate for pressure on the foot many times greater than found in walking. They must also have good medial-lateral stability. Impact forces from aerobics can reach up to six times the force of gravity, which is transmitted to each of the 26 bones in the foot.
Our Patients Love Us
An absolutely amazing experience. Dr. Ciment is an absolutely wonderful person – it is very evident that he truly cares about his patients.
What a pleasure to meet Dr. Shastri. She was extremely personable, listened intently and actually was able to treat my condition to a fair extent in the first sitting.
Highly recommend her.
