Walking - Take the first step!
The American Heart Association kicks off a month long celebration designed to help people get more active with National Walking Day, the first Wednesday in April.
Walking is the first step in getting active. In fact brisk walking lowers your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes as much as running.
So take the first step, and check out the AMA’s website for everything you need to know about walking from just starting out, to preventing injury to tips on finding the right shoes.
Tip! Walking with friends is a great way to stay motivated.
If you feel any foot/ankle pain, make an appointment with us today to get walking sooner!
