Chiropractors can help you prevent running-related problems by assessing your gait, as well as the mobility of the joints in your feet, legs, pelvis and spine. Should you suffer stress and strain from running, a chiropractor can also provide treatment for your pain.
Shoe Shopping Tips
-Shop in the afternoon or evening, as your feet tend to accumulate fluid and swell throughout the day.
-Not all shoes are created equally. The same shoe sizes can have different fits depending on the maker. Make sure you try several sizes to find the most comfortable shoe.
-Avoid buying shoes that you feel need a break-in period. Shoes should be comfortable from the first time you put them on.
-Running shoes are an investment in your health. Better quality shoes may cost more but will pay off in terms of support and sturdiness.
-Most importantly, your running shoes must be comfortable- go for a short jog inside the store to test them out!
-And lastly, to prevent injury, don’t forget to replace your runners every 400 to 60 miles or 6 month, whichever comes first.
