Blister Myth Busting with Rebecca Rushton

Footwear to perform

Rebecca Rushton graduated from Podiatry in 1993 and has since developed a key interest in blister management & prevention. We dive straight into the common misconceptions around blisters and how the definition of 'friction' can be very misleading.

We uncover why blisters occur from an anatomy stand-point and if some runners are more susceptible than others. Once knowing what actually causes blisters, Rebecca delves into her top treatment tips and answers your patron questions, including:

  • What can we do to prevent blisters during wet conditions?
  • What is the best way to treat/prevent blisters between toes?
  • What should we do for blisters mid-event?
