Healthy Feet Let You Live a Healthy Life

I recently had the opportunity to climb Pikes Peak.  Even though I've been to the summit of Pikes Peak before, this was the first time I made the climb on foot.  I climbed it with my best friend from high school, and we had a wonderful time.  When we could breathe enough to talk, we had some wonderful conversations as we hiked up from the Crags on the West side of the mountain.

Our conversations ranged from life and family, to religion, to politics, and it made me so thankful to have a good friend who could talk through many difficult topics that our society is facing.  We don't agree on everything, but it was thoroughly enjoyable to converse in a civil manner and learn from our different perspectives.

This made me so thankful for healthy feet. It's easy to take for granted our health, and the only reason I was able to have that experience in our Colorado mountains, was the health of my body and feet and ankles.  

As we pass Labor Day and head into the fall, I hope you have the opportunity to get out and explore all that Colorado has to offer.  To fully enjoy many of the outdoor activities we have where we live, we need to have healthy, pain-free feet.  If you are suffering from foot and ankle pain, it is not normal, and there are many treatment options to help you.  Call our Colorado Springs podiatry office if there is any way we can help you.  Our foot and ankle surgeons are expertly trained in surgical and non-surgical methods to get you back on your feet and enjoying the great outdoors as quickly as possible.
