Sports Medicine

Sports medicine focuses on the treatment and prevention of injuries involved in athletics, exercise, and other types of physical fitness. Common injuries and problems of the foot and ankle include ankle sprains, tendinitis, shin splints, skin blisters, turf toe, muscle strains, and fractures.

Most sprains and strains or "soft tissue" injuries can be treated conservatively with "P.R.I.C.E." therapy (Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) for several weeks. Special strapping and taping techniques can also be utilized along with different types of bracing to provide support to the injured area as it heals. Another newer treatment for both acute and chronic soft tissue injuries is extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). This is a non-invasive technique that uses soundwaves to stimulate the body's natural healing response by increasing blood flow and tissue regeneration.

More serious injuries, such as torn ligaments, fractures, and joint dislocations, or problems that do not improve with conservative treatment may require surgery. Podiatrists work closely with physical therapists, athletic trainers, and coaches during the recovery process. The goal of sports medicine diagnostics & treatments is to return to activity in a safe and timely manner and preventing further injuries.
