Sports injuries do more than just keep you off your feet for a couple of days, they can lead to more serious problems further on down the track if not treated or misdiagnosed. At Total Foot & Posture, we diagnose and treat sports injuries like ankle sprains, plantar arch strains, achilles tendon injuries, shin splints, knee pain, joint strain and muscle tears daily, helping you get back to what you love doing faster.
To ensure that your condition does not come back, our expert Podiatrist will complete a full biomechanical assessment studying the individuals gait and determining if gait is contributing to injury to properly identify the cause and administer corrective procedures. Treatment for sports related injuries depends on the area and severity of the injury. In most cases, gait will need to be altered to ensure correct foot alignment. This is achieved usually with the prescription of custom made orthotics to help realign the body's biomechanical structure.
Treatment plans are also determined by the sport or activity. For example, a runner will experience different problems to those playing contact sports. Whatever the issue, our qualified sports podiatrists can identify the problem and develop a treatment plan that will get you back on your feet.
