On my way slip, sliding away during Icemageddon 2015, I saw several people out running or attempting to run in the neighborhood. Now I’m at the office, and already have three add-on patients for this afternoon with slip and fall injuries.

 

Here is a little public service announcement from your favorite podiatrist. If you are going to run in ice and snow conditions, and not default to the treadmill, please invest a few bucks in a pair of Yaktrax’s.

 

The Yaktrax Run is an ice traction device anatomically designed for use with running shoes. Run naturally on packed snow and ice with the Yaktrax Run's combination of removable spikes and steel coils, providing 360° of unbeatable traction. Continue your training during the winter with the same stability you are accustomed to on dry surfaces. The Yaktrax Run can be worn in temperatures as low as -41-Degree Fahrenheit.

 

Smarter runners with a pair of Yaktrax don’t fall down and go boom as often!!!

 

And yes, we are open today at FAANT!
