Homeschooling? Don’t Skip PE

At Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care we know that many of our families are currently home together riding out the coronavirus and students are doing their schoolwork via distance learning. This is a big adjustment for everyone but one way to add some healthy fun is by scheduling your own gym class each day. Exercise has always had many benefits to your feet and the rest of the body. In the current situation, however, you can add fun and stress relief to all the usual helpful effects like maintaining a healthy weight and reducing your risk of disease.

Get the Ball Rolling

The specific activities you do will depend on the age and number of your children as well as the space you have available. Getting some fresh air is always a good idea! Here are some suggestions for outdoor fun:

Your Home Gym

When outdoors isn’t an option, it doesn’t mean gym class is cancelled!

If any of your fun fitness activities cause one of your family members to experience foot or ankle pain, be sure to contact our Edison (732-204-6630), Monroe (732-204-6802) or Monmouth Junction (732-204-6945) offices to see what our podiatrists, Dr. Varun Gujral and Dr. Nrupa Shah, recommend. Stay safe everyone!
