Running can be a great way to lose weight and stay in shape. Running can also help an individual lower blood pressure, increase mental acuity and is a relative inexpensive activity to participate in. All the person needs is a good pair of sneakers and a place to run. In fact the writer is certain that some people may have made a new year’s resolution to engage in physical fitness related activities, such as running. However there is a new but common aliment that is affecting runners, which is called plantar fasciitis, the link to information about this disease is at the end of this article. This is a painful condition, caused by the inflammation of tissue underneath the sole of the foot between the heel and toes. People that are 40 or older are most at risk for this disease, but the writer has also heard of some younger football players having to contend with this aliment because of the intensity of the sport. Luckily most treatment consists of non invasive treatments such as rest, stretching, before working out and using over the counter medication such as ibuprofen. Also it helps to have the proper footwear when deciding to run or jog, the picture above is a brand of sneaker some foot doctors recommend for curing foot disorders. Sneakers that have an arch for more foot support can help reduce the severity of the pain or the occurrence of this foot disease. For more information please contact the writer through
