I’ve started getting pain since I began running, what could it be?

Exercise is great for us for so many reasons. However, it’s important to be careful about the type of exercise we do, as well as how much and how hard we exercise – especially when you’re starting out.

If you’re experiencing pain in the ball of your feet since beginning to exercise you could be experiencing a stress fracture, bursitis, a Morton’s neuroma, or several muscle tendinopathies.

It’s important to address these issues as soon as they occur as they are likely to deteriorate and become more difficult to fix over time.
