Sports podiatry is a specialized aspect of podiatry. Common sport related podiatry related injuries were ankle sprains, bursitis, heel spurs, fracture, neuroma, shin splints and so on.
At Excel podiatry, we have seen various sport related foot, ankle and legs problems due to the large range and age group of client tale.
Some of the sport related podiatric foot conditions that were commonly seen were:
Achilles heel pain
Sprains and strain injuries
Fractures and stress fractures
Heel pain (including plantar fasciitis)
Nerve problems (neuritis and neuromas)
Ligamentous and muscular strains or tears
Addressing these problems may be as simple as correcting faulty alignment with foot and ankle orthotics or advice on the best shoes for you and your sport. We offer a comprehensive range of sport-specific custom orthotics.
Further management may be required including strapping, therapeutic ultrasound or investigations such as x-rays and scans to determine the level of injury.
Through our thorough assessment techniques we can diagnose your problem accurately, develop a treatment plan and get you back on track to return to sport as soon as possible.
