Triad Foot and Ankle Center is excited to have teamed up with Walk with a Doc in hosting local walks with our physicians in an effort to promote active, healthy lifestyles in the Triad.
According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those who are more than 20% overweight. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?
Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improving your general health to live longer! While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by Triad Foot & Ankle Center’s physicians.
You don’t need any special gear and there are no special rules. Just put on a pair of comfortable shoes and come walk with us! Children and leashed pets are welcome – make it a family affair!
