The Hiking Engine: A Hiker's Guide to the Care and Maintenance of Feet and Legs

by

The Hiking Engine: A Hiker's Guide to the Care and Maintenance of Feet and Legs Cover

 

 

Excerpt

Bunions are painful "bumps" on the Hallux or big toe joint that rub against the shoe. There are a lot of "old wives tales" concerning the cause of bunions--forget them all. Shoes do not cause bunions! Bunions are caused by a biomechanical problem with the way you walk. Anyone with an excessively pronated, or flatfoot is at risk for developing bunions. There is a genetic component to bunions. While there is no such thing as a "bunion gene," you do inherit certain structural traits that predispose you to bunions. These include, intoed gait, knock-knees, bow legs, tight calf muscle, and intrinsic foot deformities. Bunions can only be "cured" surgically, but they can be prevented! If you have a family history of bunions and you notice them beginning on your feet, custom made functional foot orthotics can improve your gait and help prevent their development.

Until a hiker injures a foot or leg--a blister on the foot, a sprained ankle, an unattended scratch that gets infected--he or she might not pay a lot of attention to the care of legs and feet. The Hiking Engine increases awareness of all that can potentially go wrong on any kind of hike, so you can avoid the worst and enjoy the best.
