Top of the foot pain

The new fall lineup of television shows will make their debut in the coming weeks. One favorite, The Biggest Loser, is sure to continue to be a fan favorite. Alison Sweeney, host of the show, is also an avid runner. With or without star power, those who choose to run for health and fun can be stopped in their tracks by top of the foot pain.

Before you panic, check your laces! If you are lacing your shoes too tightly, discomfort can be the result. Pain that continues after this simple adjustment should not be ignored.

If your laces aren’t the culprit, there could be a more serious problem. Stress fractures are common among runners due to the intense pressure and strain placed on the feet with each strike of the pavement. The top of the foot consists of five long bones that lead to the toes. These are typically the ones affected by the stress of running. Considered an overuse injury, breaks are more common in women than men.

To avoid this type of injury, never make sudden changes in your routine. Running more often, at a faster pace, or on a different type of terrain can all lead to this type of fracture. Be sure to stretch before any type of exercise and make gradual adjustments when necessary. Proper footwear is another key to providing the support and cushion your feet need to perform their best.

Running should never make you feel like a loser, so address pain immediately with rest, ice, elevation, and a call to one of our three locations: Sugar Land, Houston, or Missouri City. Dr. Marco Vargas will help you get back on your feet and on with your workout. Call for an appointment today, or schedule online.
