The sad truth is that feet are often ignored, abused and misunderstood. While they truly are the foundation of your body, they often are not protected and cared for like they should be. This is especially true when it comes the footwear you put on.

Dr. Phil Pinkser, foot specialist in Washington, PA, sees countless patients who come in complaining of foot pain. Upon closer examination, it is often found that shoesare the source of the pain.

Do you really know what kind of shoes your feet need?

There are many online tools that can be helpful when it comes to caring for your feet. The shoe finder found at www.runnersworld.comis one of those great resources. The shoe finder uses information that you provide to in turn suggest the best running shoes for your foot type and activity level. The shoe finder takes into consideration the following factors:

  • Age
  • Weight
  • Running experience
  • Type of foot arch
  • Foot mechanics
  • Type of shoe you are looking for

Why not just go to the mall and pick a shoe that looks great with a cheap price? The bottom line is that your feet need to be properly supported, especially if they are going to be pounding the pavement every day. The right shoes are going to make all the difference in how you feel during and after a run. They will also help prevent injuries such as plantar fasciitis, bruised toenails, Achilles injuriesand blisters.

If you need help finding out what kind of shoes are best for your feet, let us help you! Come in and see Dr. Pinsker for a through foot evaluation. Not only can he diagnose your foot type but also catch any potential injuries to be aware of. Request online or call our podiatric office today to make an appointment (724) 225-7410.
