Shamrock CastIt’s that time of year again, the Savannah St. Patrick's Day Parade is right around the corner. Years of experience have taught the doctors and staff that there are just certain types of foot injuries that seem to occur on St. Patrick's day, and no, they are not all caused by too much green beer! Be wary of these four common foot maladies.

  • Plantar Fasciitis - we see this one commonly all year round, but occurrences rise due to long periods of walking in unsupportive shoes.
  • Neuroma - yet another common one caused by improper shoewear. This time the culprit is those cute pointy toed shoes; look out for this one ladies.
  • Tendonitis - if you are marching in the parade, this is one to look out for, caused by overuse and repetitive activity of the tendons around the ankle.
  • Ankle Sprains - Ok, so maybe one of these does have something to do with too much green beer. Combined with the cobblestones on River Street, ankle sprains abound around St. Patty’s.

So do yourself a favor and look out for your feet this St. Patrick's day. May the luck of the Irish be with you!
