Don't Let Flip-Flops Trip You Up
Flip-flops are the most popular summer footwear; but they're not the safest. With thin, flat soles, they can strain foot and calf muscles, causing tendinitis and hip, leg, or back pain, while making wearers prone to sprains and injuries from splinters, rocks, nails, or other sharp objects. So, save them for the pool or beach, but never wear flip-flops for strenuous activities like sports, hiking, or, especially, mowing the lawn. And if you incur foot wounds, stress fractures, Achilles tendinitis, or any other foot problems, call us immediately.
