Foot injury from running in North Myrtle Beach

My Personal Story With Joint Pain and A Running Injury

Over a decade ago, I experienced an ankle and foot injury that involved spraining my ankle. At the time, I was given an aircast and told to rest it for a while. I started running again about a month later with mild soreness that eventually resolved. For years, this injury remained mostly dormant, allowing me to continue with my passion for running, which has always been my source of sanity, clarity, and a profound connection with God. I’ve been running since I was 6 years old after watching my teenage sister start running for cross country and track, and have been running ever since. Of course there have been times in the last few decades of my life that I was less consistent, but I’ve never gone more than a couple of weeks or months without running with the exception of the end of my pregnancies. As an often overstimulated mama who is working and homeschooling full-time, running when my husband gets home for the day is my sanctuary. Any agitation or stress that has built up in the day mostly disappears by the time I return home from my run. Running is not so much about physical exercise as it is about maintaining my mental and emotional health. 

However, last October, my old injury started acting up again. While I’ve been running consistently this past decade, I had ramped up my running over the spring and summer as I started getting back into more competitive 5k & 10k runs. After several months of running around 20 miles per week, I found myself having pain even walking, let alone running. As a strong proponent of listening to all of the body’s messages (Read more on that here:, I knew I shouldn’t try to keep pushing past it and needed to listen to my body before it had to scream at me. 

Finding A Natural Solution To Pain Relief and Healing

Feeling frustrated and desperate to get back to my running routine, I turned to my husband, Dr. Brandon Morris, for advice. As a strong proponent of taking X-rays to truly see what is happening in the body, we started with X-rays of my foot and ankle to really see what was going on. It turns out that my former ankle injury was actually also a foot fracture and my foot and ankle had developed arthritis from the injury and decades of intensity from running. It was disappointing for him to recommend 8 weeks of rest, but I was glad to know what was actually going on and to find out what was actually going on, even though I wasn’t happy to hear I had arthritis at only 34 years old. 

I stopped going on walks and runs for 8 weeks and wore my ankle brace at times when I was on my feet more in my tennis shoes and it was feeling better. So I started to run again, slowly and for only 1-2 miles instead of my usual 3-4 mile runs and kept my brace on while I was running, but to my disappointment, it started hurting again, although not as intense. Voicing my frustration to Brandon, he recommended I try Chiropractor’s Blend Joint Relief EXL-2 supplement that we carry in the office. I had never taken it before, but I also hadn’t dealt with much pain or injuries so I thought I would give it a try since he’s seen great results with patients who come into the office with joint and ligament injuries and pain.

Giving Joint Relief EXL-2 a Try 

I started taking Joint Relief EXL-2 2-4x/day and noticed an improvement within a few days. I’m happy to report that more than 3 months later of running 20+ miles per week, my foot and ankle don’t hurt or even feel sensitive at all anymore. I’m still taking the supplement, although not as consistently but I’ve been able to enjoy running all spring pain free and without fear of further injuring it.
