Foot Tips

Katriona’s clinical experience has found that a good running shoe and stretching the calf muscles can often resolves aches and pains, as well as, even preventing an injury.


The whole body must pivot through the ankle joint when walking and running, if this is restricted it is like driving your car with the hand-break on, quite simply the foot nor the lower limb can function properly.

Research has shown that a quick 30 second stretch is not sufficient for changing the function of the calf muscles.  Katriona recommends holding a calf stretch for 4 minutes twice a day.  A more flexible calf muscle can speed up your running and improve your shock absorption.

Running Shoes:

Katriona would highly recommend changing your running shoes every 400 miles and to keep up-to-date with what is out there.
