MLB player Alex Rios was forced to make an exit during the eighth inning against the Indians after injuring his foot. Rios, who is said to have suffered a foot contusion, walked very gingerly off the field during mid-at-bat.
Although Rios could be able to play as soon as Wednesday, teams may be hesitant on adding the outfielder given the possibility of having a lingering in jury. Rumors involving Rios being traded has been going around since July although after Tuesday night, these rumors may just be squashed.
It is important that the right shoes are worn for protection and guard against pain and discomfort. A podiatrist like Dr. Michael Wynn of Foot Care Associates of Texas, P.A. can make recommendations on how to care and find shoes that fit you, as well as help you with any foot pain you might have experienced from wearing ill-fitting footwear.
Working On Your Feet
Long periods of standing often times lead to pain and discomfort around the feet. Every day the body undergoes a series of stresses, especially during work. To minimize these stresses on your feet, better shoe choices and proper posture will significantly help.
A Negative Heel
· This is where the heel is slightly lower than the ball of the foot.
· Having your feet crammed into shoes for long periods of time increases pressure. Giving your feet some exposure to air and walking barefoot helps tremendously.
Exercise Your Feet
· A foot workout helps correct movements and stimulates the blood flow and muscles of the feet.
Spending a majority of the time on your feet will most likely trigger pain; even more so if you suffer from poor circulation. Proper footwear and appropriate stretching will alleviate pain and prevent further issues. When your feet hurt, it is best to take care of them right away.
