Foot Notes

Common Injuries and Conditions

On this portion of the Wasatch Running Center web page, I will attempt to provide some information regarding common foot and ankle injuries experienced by runners, walkers, and other active individuals. Certified Pedorthists do not diagnose medical conditions or diseases, nor do they provide prescriptions or prognoses. Accordingly, the information contained on this page is not intended to diagnose or treat any condition, injury, or disease. If you believe you may have a condition that requires a medical diagnosis and/or treatment, visit a qualified physician.

What follows is a brief description of a few problems we see regularly in the store, along with common causes and treatments for these conditions. Again, this is not intended to serve as a diagnosis or recommended treatment for any individual. The descriptions that follow are intended to help educate active people about common ailments and conditions, as well as how we address such issues in the store.
