If you are an athlete or frequently play sports, you know that sports injuries are commonplace. There is nothing worse than having to stop playing your favourite game because of pain or having to sit out a season because of an injury. Thankfully, when you need a sports medicine podiatrist, Taylors Lakes Podiatry Clinic is here to help.
Our clinic is unique in that we offer specified treatment plans for a variety of different needs. We understand that everybody has a unique situation, so we treat each person with an individualised approach. Our friendly team is passionate about foot care and tending to your personal needs.
When to visit a sports podiatrist
There are many ways a sports medicine foot doctor or sports podiatrist can help you with your sports-related injury or pain. In addition to direct contact injuries, repetitive stress and overuse can cause damage and pain in the ankles, feet, and even in the lower legs. Podiatric injuries can also cause pain and discomfort in other areas of your body, such as back, hips, knees, and shins. If you are experiencing pain in any of these areas, you might consider having your feet or ankles checked by a professional.
We can help you with ankle sprains, stress fractures, Achilles tendonitis, and many other sports related foot injuries. If need be, we can also fit you with orthotics or insoles for your shoes to correct training problems, and even prevent future injuries by providing advice for proper shoes and posture during exercise.
Other ways we can help
Many sports injuries are related to or caused by the way you are training, your footwear, and your form. Foot and ankle conditions such as plantar fasciitis and medial tibial stress syndrome, also known as shin splints, can be caused by many different factors. Whether caused by training or another factor in your life, these conditions can affect and even be exacerbated by your training.
A sports foot doctor can help with plantar fasciitis and other localised pain by determining the cause of the pain, such as foot posture, shoes you are training in, gait, and hard surfaces on which you stand. We can help guide you through a focused treatment plan, optimised for your wellbeing and educate you on how to prevent future foot and ankle injuries.
It can be frustrating to have to quit playing your favourite sport or take days off of training because of foot or ankle pain. Thankfully, our qualified and friendly podiatrists are skilled in working with people of all ages, sizes, and sports backgrounds to reduce and prevent discomfort. We want to help get your feet back on the field, court, or gym floor in no time.
