While athletic activity can certainly benefit your general health, overuse injuries and even acute tendon tears and broken bones can occur. Our treatment plans are tailored to return you to your previous level of activity as quickly as possible, while ensuring the best long-term outcome.
Sprains and broken bones can have identical symptoms. Bruising, pain and swelling are common. If you sustain a sports-related injury, an appointment with a podiatrist will allow quick diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Most sports-related injuries are non-surgical in nature. The primary treatment techniques include immobilization, oral anti-inflammatory medications and braces. If you sustain a more serious injury, such as a broken bone, your podiatrist will identify whether surgical treatment will give you the best outcome.
