Start Off a New Exercise Program on the Right Foot

At Central Jersey Ankle & Foot Care Specialists we know that many of our patients will be making New Year’s resolutions to get in shape in 2019. This is a great goal for your feet. Regular exercise increases flexibility and improves circulation. In conjunction with a healthy eating plan, it can also help you attain and remain at a healthy weight, which further reduces foot pain and the risk for several podiatric disorders.

However, if not undertaken properly, a new fitness regimen can result in injury and harm. Below are some tips to help you get a healthy start on your new exercise program:

  • Before starting any new exercise consult your general practitioner and your podiatrist. Our foot and ankle surgeons, Dr. Christopher J. Mullin or Dr. Jessica A. Addeo will examine your feet and ankles and make sure that any chronic foot conditions are under control. The podiatrist can also recommend activities and shoe designs that will best accommodate existing problems your feet have.
  • Invest in the right footwear. Today’s sports shoes are designed to support your feet for movement called for by specific sports. Your shoes are the single most important piece of “equipment” for any new exercise activity. Go to a store that specializes in athletic footwear and have your feet professionally measured and fitted.
  • Choose an activity that is right for you. Take into consideration your current level of fitness as well as any previous injuries or limitations you have. Talk to your physician about the type of exercise—aerobic, strength training, stretching--that will be most beneficial.
  • Take it easy. Whatever fitness or exercise program you pick, be sure to start off slowly. Gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts. Doing too much too soon puts you at risk for injuries such as Achilles tendonitis, shin splints and ankle sprains.
  • Listen to your body. If your feet (or any other part of your body) begins to hurt while you are exercising, stop! Although some muscles soreness may be normal with a new exercise routine, ongoing pain is not. If you experience foot or ankle pain or discomfort from exercise, contact our Aberdeen office for an appointment by calling: 732-566-2841.
