When foot ailments trip you up this spring Rhode Island Foot & Ankle www.rifootandankle.com


The weather has taken a solid turn towards spring, and it is time to shed the lethargy of winter, pull out the athletic shoes and start moving! With every step an active person takes however, there is the inherent risk of injury.
