Cases of “pandemic foot” soared during the pandemic.
“The pandemic changed a lot of people’s behaviors and normal routines,” Dr. Brad Blankenhorn, a foot and ankle specialist at University Orthopedics, told Channel 10’s Barbara Morse.
Blankenhorn said foot injuries were, and continue to be a big problem due to overuse, underuse, and risky behavior.
