Atlas Running Injury Clinic, Solihull, Birmingham
Laser Foot Scan in preparation for prescription foot orthotics
Solihull Podiatrist Peter Taylor specialises in running injuries and looking after runners feet. Poor biomechanics often result in running injuries and accurate realignment can often prevent injuries especially high mileage training for races such as the London Marathon.
Prescription orthotics for overpronated or flat feet can often cure the problem of conditions such as shinsplints, achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis.
Running blisters can often stop you running, generally blisters are caused by friction and rubbing. There are special blister socks which can help but an option is to smear vaseline over your feet to prevent friction and review your running shoes.
Often runners are advised to purchase running shoes that are too large and the feet slide about inside the shoes when running, thus creating the rubbing effect that cause blisters.
Incorrectly fitted orthotics can also cause blisters so please get your orthotics fitted by a specialist with running experience. In Solihull Birmingham we have such a clinic. Visit www.runninginjuryclinic.co.uk for help with running injuries and orthotics
