Sports Injuries

sportsA podiatrist can help an athlete achieve superior performance, not only by treating sports injuries such as ankle sprains and stress fractures, but also by working with the athlete and other specialists to improve foot, leg and spinal alignment with the use of physical therapy and orthotics. Minor aches and pains that are attended to early can prevent more serious problems later.
Podiatrists work with athletes at every level of performance, from young children first learning the game, to weekend amateur sports enthusiasts, to world-class players in every sport. A podiatrist can recommend proper warmup and cool-down practice or the best shoes for a given activity that will help prevent or speed recovery from sports injuries. By including input from dieticians, orthopedists, endocrinologists and other specialists, a podiatrist can provide every athlete with an individualized approach to effective training.
