It is estimated that 5 million gardeners will experience some sort of foot pain this spring as a result of failing to first warm-up and stretch muscles in the feet. We feel that Gardening is an exertive, weight-bearing activity and should be considered more of a sport than a passive hobby.
Problems that may be precipitated include: foot & ankle swelling, or foot & toe cramps, skin infections and plantar fasciitis. Improper shoe gear may invite other troubles. If foot problems persist long after your activity, you should call us at Affiliated Podiatrists for an appointment.
