Foot Myth Busters

 


Only Athletes Can Get Athletes Foot

  • According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), athlete’s foot is a fungal condition that typically occurs in between the toes, but can occur anywhere on the foot. The condition is characterized by redness, itchiness, cracked and flaky skin, and sometimes blisters or sores. The fungus spreads rapidly in environments that are warm, wet, and dark.
  • Some risk factors for athlete’s foot include: allergies, eczema, genetic predisposition, circulatory issues due to conditions like diabetes, those with weakened immune system, and sports in which the players wear shoes that are tight-fitting and hold moisture (swimming, soccer, football).
  • Athlete’s are indeed more susceptible to getting “Athlete’s Foot” because of the wet environment of their shoewear, however, anyone can get athletes foot. To avoid getting athlete’s foot, it is important to keep your feet dry and properly dry feet after bathing.

Walking barefoot in a locker room or a public showering facility like at a community pool, can put a person in direct contact with the fungus.

Patient Testimonials

  • I was a very active person prior to my injury and I'm finally getting back to doing the things I love, which include running, walking my dog, hiking, yoga, fitness classes, and more. I highly recommend Ortho Rehab Specialists. The staff is personable, professional and willing to go the extra mile for their patients.

  • I have chosen to work with the OrthoRehab professionals time and time again because of really three reasons. First, they are truly passionate about what they do and they care about me. Second, they are athletes and professionals, and thus they know what I am going through at each stage of recovery and rehab. And finally, they apply these things, that is, their passion and personal experience, to provide me with expertise that has allowed me to heal and excel, which is everything to me.

    Betsy B.
  • I had been battling a very painful bout of Achilles tendinitis early on my training for my first marathon. The pain was severe and disruptive, leaving me with doubt that I could even run the race. Andy, Jessie and staff explained the treatment plan and immediately got to work. Not only did I finish the race PAIN FREE, I beat my time goal and will always be grateful of the amazing job done by the staff at OrthoRehab Specialists!
    Andy W.
  • From day one, we had a plan for how to reach my goal in a safe, healthy, and responsible manner. I always knew what we were doing and why. I was treated as a person and not a symptom. My team gave me confidence that our plan would not aggravate my pain, as several months of my own self-care was fruitless. Leaving the office on that first day, I already trusted my team and that we were in it together.
    Dianna R.
  • Matt did an excellent job identifying my injury, developing a program to address my injury, and helping me become more aware of the importance of my core strength.
    Paul L.
  • I’ve seen many physical therapists over the years. Nobody has every genuinely cared about my recovery the way Andy and his team have.
