In this episode, I interview Lisa
Wilkes, a lifelong trekker and incredibly knowledgeable podiatrist.
She helps clear up many of the misconceptions around feet which
commonly get passed around in the hiking community.
When it comes to hiking, your feet are your best friend. But,
unfortunately, foot issues are incredibly common in the adventure
community. And even more unfortunate, is that there is SO much
misinformation around these topics in the hiking world...
Subjects like how to deal with plantar fasciitis, how to
prevent shin splints and the use of orthotics are some of the
common subjects which get absolutely butchered.
So to clear things up, I invited Lisa on to the show, to help
share her specialist insights on a number of these topics.
Plantar Fasciitis (and why you have absolutely no hope
of trying to self diagnose it on the internet)
What orthotics are good for (and what they are not so great
A few signs you may need to invest in a new pair of
shoes or boots
Dealing with weak ankles while hiking
Shin splints (what they are and how to manage
How best to prevent and treat blisters
- And much, much more
