Providing treatment for injuries from playing sports
At Twin Rivers Podiatry, we diagnose and treat many types of common sports injuries including foot and ankle injuries including tendonitis, ankle sprains, stress fractures and traumatic injuries. Sports injuries are being seen with increased frequency as America continues to make regular exercise part of their daily fitness plan. Sports injuries to the foot and ankle can be caused by trauma, improper warm-up, overuse, improper foot wear, and playing on hard surfaces. At our office, we treat sports injuries with a working knowledge of individual sports and their commonly associated injuries.
Generally there are two types of injuries related to athletic activities:
- Overuse injuries, that include tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and stress fractures.
- Traumatic injuries occur from a specific event such as an ankle sprain, contusion, or traumatic fracture.
