Fit Feet

PrintFounded to evaluate problems of the feet, ankles, lower extremity biomechanics, as well as checking for proper shoe and sock gear, Fit Feet is one of the newest Healthy Athlete disciplines.

Many Special Olympics athletes suffer from foot and ankle pain or deformities that impair their performance. Also, athletes are not always fitted with the best shoes and socks for their particular sport. Volunteer health care professionals screen athletes’ feet and ankles for deformities, and also check for proper shoes and socks. They are provided with community referrals as needed and athletes, coaches and families are educated on the proper shoes and socks.
