What have we ever done for Sporty people?

 

“The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.”  
Leonardo da Vinci

Avoidance of pain from Plantar Fasciitis (PF) is why we started Aussie Soles UK.

90 mins of running in Delhi led to excruciating pain in my heel. A podiatrist told me I had PF, advising me to 'get into arch support the moment you step out of bed'.

On the way to Queensland's Noosa beach I found the perfect solution: Aussie Soles. Once you've had PF you worry about it coming back so I bought a pair and introduced the company to the UK.

Here's the 10 questions Aussie Soles want you Athletes to ask yourselves to maintain foot health and stay injury-free:

  1. Footwear: Am I wearing the most comfortable, suitable shoes I can afford?
  2. Stretching: Warm-ups and cool-downs: How much do I really stretch?
  3. Recovery Footwear: What do I wear after training and between events?
  4. Rest: Am I listening to my body, treating it with respect and resting enough?
  5. Massage: Do I use foam rolls or roller balls on my feet for recovery?
  6. Variety: do I mix off and on road running distances and speeds?
  7. Pain: do I run through it or stop? Please stop!
  8. Podiatrist/Physio Advice: would I seek advice if pain persists ? Please do!
  9. Arch Support: do my feet have an indoor and outdoor solution?
  10. Strength: what exercises am I doing to build foot strength?

And remember Leo's words - look after those feet!
