In today’s program, Dr. Reminga talks about the popular sport of running for fun, fitness, or competition and how this activity can affect your feet. Many people enjoy running. They also prepare for and run marathons throughout the year. Imagine this… it’s early morning, the day before... you ran in a half-marathon. You lay awake because your feet have kept you awake off and on all night long. You’re someone that has run long distances for years and you diligently follow all the known rules and tips about preparing for a long run. So, why do your feet feel like they’ve been through a war instead of a marathon? What you may be experiencing is something referred to as “marathon feet”. This is a common post-marathon condition which can be VERY painful.

The condition most often affects first-time runners or those who haven’t been active in the sport for awhile. This type of person may be awakened by pain in the night, the day after a long-distance marathon or running event. The pain can be so intense that it renders them unable to walk and even a blanket resting on top of their feet is painful. With “marathon feet”, the soft tissues of the feet become very irritated and inflamed due to the constant pounding and impact the feet absorb for the many miles it takes to run a marathon. Whether it’s a half marathon, full marathon or long run...this condition and other foot problems can result.

Dr. Reminga talks about Marathon Feet and other conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis that can affect runner. He discusses what can be done for these conditions and how he treats this type of patient in his office at Northern Foot Care Center. If you enjoy running, this show will be of particular interest to you.
