Winter is almost over, and soon springtime weather will be inviting us out to play our favorite sports. Longer days with even more sunshine welcome fun activities for you and your family. Before you jump into a new sport or dust off your shoes from last spring, Dr. Brandon A. Macy and his team at Clark Podiatry Center have a few questions to ask before your big game. These questions focus on the health of your feet, ankles, and shoes; they can also guide you on ways to prevent sports injuries.

Is it time for a new pair of shoes?

For adults, your shoe size may not be the reason for a new pair. Instead, it could be that your foot needs have changed.   Your shoes have worn, or you need additional support— like a pair of orthotics. For children, whose feet are quickly growing, we strongly recommend that you have a professional measure their feet for the new season.

Am I ready to play a sport?

If you were recently diagnosed with a medical condition, including one that affects your feet or ankles, consult a medical professional before beginning a new sport. You may need additional time to recover or supports such, as a brace or custom orthotics.

Do I have unaddressed foot or ankle pain?

If you have been experiencing foot and ankle pain, you should schedule an appointment with a podiatrist. Never ignore pain.  Pushing through pain can cause more harm and potentially worsen your condition.

Who should I call if I experience a foot or ankle injury?

If you experience an injury to your foot or ankle, we recommend visiting an expert — a podiatrist. Sports injuries are common, so knowing this information will be one less thing to worry about if you are in distress.

Be prepared; spring is on its way. After answering these questions, schedule an appointment with Dr. Brandon A. Macy of Clark Podiatry Center if you need additional guidance. He is a board-certified podiatrist, located at our Clark, New Jersey office. New Jersey’s Children’s Foot Health Institute is a part of the Clark Podiatry Center, too. Call 732-382-3470.
