As specialists sports podiatrist here are some sporting injuries that’s we treat on a daily basis
Foot, Ankle, and Toe Fractures:
These can occur from direct trauma, like a fall or collision, or from repetitive stress, like running or jumping.
This painful condition is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot.
This involves inflammation of the Achilles tendon, which connects your calf muscles to your heel bone. It’s often seen in runners and other athletes who do a lot of running and jumping.
These are bony growths on the underside of the heel bone, often caused by strains on foot muscles and ligaments or repeated tearing of the membrane that covers the heel bone.
These small cracks in the bone often develop from overuse or repetitive activity over a long period of time.
This term describes pain along the inner edge of the shinbone, often caused by excessive force on the shinbone and the tissues attaching the shinbone to the muscles surrounding it.
Chronic Ankle Instability:
This condition often occurs after repeated ankle sprains. The “loose” or unstable ankle can make you prone to further injury.
Such as sesamoiditis, metatarsalgia: These conditions involve pain and inflammation in the forefront of the foot.
While mild sprains can often be treated at home, severe sprains should be evaluated and treated by a professional to prevent long-term issues.
