Wearing Flip-Flops? Watch Your Step!
While flip-flops may be the most popular summer footwear, they pose plenty of potential perils to foot health. Their lack of arch support can strain Achilles tendons and calf muscles; and, as they have no straps, people hold them on by scrunching their toes, which can stretch the plantar fascia, the tissue that runs from the heel to the toe. These conditions often result in Achilles tendinitis or Plantar fasciitis. So, if you’re already suffering from foot problems, call us right away; and if you're still wearing flip-flops, watch your step!
