Sports Injuries

Just like you, we’re athletes.

Okay, none of us starred for a D1 college program or made it to the pros. But we love to move and play. Running. Hiking. Tennis. Hockey. Pick-up basketball at the local gym.

So we understand that, no matter your skill level, a foot or ankle sports injury can be devastating. You’d do anything to get back in the game, or back to your routine, as quickly and safely as possible.

We know because we’ve been there.

And that’s why we’re always willing to go the extra mile for our active patients—from youth athletes to middle aged weekend warriors and everything in between. With comprehensive and advanced treatment options at our disposal, we’ll help you get your life back.

Common Foot and Ankle Sports Injuries

We treat all injuries of the feet and ankles—everything from sudden, emergency trauma to chronic pain and soreness that develops slowly over time. Examples of conditions we regularly treat include:

  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • Arch pain
  • Ankle sprains
  • Ankle fractures
  • Bursitis
  • Foot fractures
  • Forefoot pain (metatarsalgia)
  • Heel pain
  • Midfoot injuries
  • Muscle strains / pulls
  • Shin splints
  • Stress fractures
  • Turf toe

Advanced Sports Injury Management

It’s true—most athletes would do almost anything to stay in the game. Unfortunately, that often means they try to manage serious injuries on their own, and wait too long to get help.

If you’re hurt on the field or along the trail, and the pain is preventing you from feeling or playing your best, don’t take chances. Our team will get you a quick and accurate diagnosis, and draw up an effective treatment plan personalized to match your condition, your sport, and your activity level.

Our services for athletes include:

  • Digital X-ray and diagnostic ultrasound. Our in-office diagnostic tools give us instant feedback on the extent of any damage to bones and soft tissues.
  • Custom orthotics for athletes. We fit high quality custom orthotics matched to your exact foot type and built from materials that offer the optimal mix of rigidity for support, flexibility for motion, and softness and thinness for comfort and compatibility. The right pair of orthotics can refigure the biomechanics of your entire lower body, allowing you to play longer, harder, and even better—without pain.
  • Advanced therapies. We are proud to offer advanced conservative treatment options that proven themselves highly effect at helping athletes accelerate their recovery from injury—sometimes even cutting their expected return time in half! This includes platelet-rich plasma therapy and MLS laser therapy.

Treatment plans will also likely include more traditional treatment protocols, including stretching, physical therapy, activity modifications, etc.

However, it’s important to know why you’re doing these things, how to do them, and in what order to do them—and that all starts with a thorough examination from a foot and ankle expert.

Trust us—we want to get you back on the field almost as badly as you do, and we want to give you every possible advantage so you can make a quick and thorough recovery.

If you wait to get help, you’ll only spend more time suffering—and ultimately, more time unable to perform your best (or at all).
