How To Identify Weakness and Prevent Injuries
No matter the activity – walking, running, jumping, and stopping – your feet are vital to your mobility. Identifying weaknesses in your feet and ankles (and even in your knees and hips) can help you prevent debilitating injuries caused by activities and sports. Be proactive and protect your feet and other supporting structures with proper footwear and gear. Be sure to also engage in thorough warm ups and conditioning.*
You can look out for weaknesses by performing stability tests; try engaging in a squatting position or balancing on a single leg to spot troublesome areas. Be sure not to ignore past or current injuries either. Reasonable accommodations can make all the difference in your health, mobility and comfort.
