AUGH!

AUGH!

DDR and my flat feet made my heel spurs!!!
ok, so i have heel spurs. they are annoying buggers. i wake up in the morning and i can barely walk on my right heel it hurts so bad.
so i finally looked up heel spurs and what exactly they are. the muscle that connects your heel to the ball of your foot is what actually causes they pain. it’s inflamed (apparenlty all the time). this gets inflamed from lack of arch support (i have flat feet) and lack of calf muscle flexibility (when your calf muscle isn’t flexible enough, this muscle in your foot makes up for it). when i play ddr, my poor little heel muscle is working overtime, because my calves aren’t working AND i play on the balls of my feet.
and i realized my heel spurs really didn’t start to be a pain until after i started playing DDR.
so now i’m going to do calf stretching exercises and wear my tennis shoes (with arch support) more often.
stupid heel spurs!
