Today is the unofficial start of fall and the first day of school.  Fall sports will be in full swing before you know it.  These are a few tips to stay healthy and safe as kids fall back into their school/sport routines!

  • Have a pre-season physical examination and have your orthotics checked for size and condition. 
  • Always take the time to warm-up and cool down properly.
  • Stay hydrated to limit cramps. 
  • Be aware of playing surfaces and change shoes accordingly. 
  • Never "play through the pain".  If your body is telling you something is wrong, see a doctor. 
  • Make sure your footwear are properly fitted and in good condition.  You can always bring them in to be checked. 
  • Be aware weather conditions such as wet, slippery fields that can lead to injuries.
  •  Listen to your body and decrease training time and intensity as needed, if pain or discomfort develops. This will reduce the risk of injury and help avoid burning yourself out. 
  • Visit us at Advanced Podiatry for your fall sports check up!
