We treat foot pain, ankle pain and other running-related conditions.
Running is fast becoming the most popular recreational activity in the United States. In 2016, more than 16 million people participated in organized road races across the country.
While running is an excellent way to get into shape, relieve stress and improve your cardiovascular health, it can take its toll on the body, particularly on the feet. Because the mechanics of running are quite different from walking, it can lead to overuse injuries, stress fractures, tendonitis and arthritis. It is also not uncommon for runners to develop hammertoes and bunions. Long-distance runners frequently lose their toenails, and may also be more prone to thick and/or discolored toenails.
We treat all these and many other running-related injuries through a variety of medical and biomechanical procedures. From painful toenails to custom orthotics to outpatient surgery, Anchorage Foot & Ankle Clinic is here to keep Alaskan runners running—and racking up the mileage.
