Bassett surgeon sees increase in foot injuries

(Continued)

Runners can take action to prevent repetitive stress injuries in their feet by wearing supportive athletic shoes and slowly building up their activity levels according to their abilities. 

“If a runner suffers from abnormal mechanics in the foot, such as over-pronation or hypermobility, custom orthotics can also be helpful to prevent these injuries,” Bahlatzis said in the release.

Bahlatzis sees patients at Bassett Medical Center, Herkimer Health Center and Oneonta Specialty Services.
