In fact, recently a new trend has been popping up among stars and it’s nothing they’ll want to have while walking the red carpet. Some of Hollywood’s biggest names have been hobbling around with foot injuries and they aren’t letting it slow them down.

January 20, 2014 – Foot Injury Outbreak Overtakes Hollywood 

First, there’s Madonna, the 55-year old music legend. She apparently bruised a bone in her foot when she went out dancing in high heels.  While she’s on crutches for the next week or so, according to her reps, she’s vowed not to miss a minute of her regular workouts. Just days after sustaining her injury, Madonna shared a photo of herself on Twitter, working out at her gym with crutches. She captioned the picture of herself “Inventing a new workout on crutches,” with the hashtag #nothingcanstopme. It appears that the exercise routine involves Madge leaning on her crutches and doing high kicks.

Meanwhile, as Madonna engaged in workouts of questionable safety, former-rapper-turned-serious-actor Mark Wahlberg was seen limping around town as well. His right foot was encased in a cast, but according to his reps, he hadn’t broken any bones. They just explained that he’d had minor foot surgery the day before being photographed, without disclosing why the surgery had been performed.

You might think these stars deserve an Academy Award for this kind of performance, but as a New York podiatrist I won't give them rave reviews because they aren’t giving their feet enough time to heal. This could lead to future injuries and could even lead to needing foot surgery.

Madonna’s bruised bone and Mark’s foot surgery may be keeping them on their feet, but if you have some of the following foot conditions, don’t wait to get them checked out. They may need attention so they don’t get worse: 

  • Bunions
  • Toenail fungus
  • Flat feet
  • Hammertoes
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Ankle pain
  • Heal Pain
  • Pain in the ball of the foot 

If you are experiencing chronic foot pain of any kind, don’t try to tough it out and wait for a nomination to visit a foot doctor. Contact a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare to see what treatment is recommended for you. We believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment.
