Sports-Related Foot Injuries: Treatments and Conditions
Not only do they diagnose and treat sports-related foot and ankle injuries, but they also provide guidance related to exercise and injury prevention. They will work with our physical therapists to implement an individualized treatment plan that will get you back to your sport or fitness activities in the safest, yet fastest manner possible.
The main sports-related injuries our foot and ankle doctors treat include:
- Ankle sprains
- Ankle fractures
- Foot and toe fractures
- Stress fractures
- Shin splints
- Achilles tendonitis and tears
- Plantar fasciitis
- Heel spurs
Most foot and ankle sports injuries do not require surgery and can be treated with pain relievers and keeping the injured area immobilized with a cast or sling for a certain period of time. However, in more severe cases, such as a complex fracture or torn tendon or ligament, a surgical procedure may be necessary to realign bones or repair torn tissue.
