Specialized Foot Injury Treatment for Athletes in Greenville
Many athletes commonly experience a foot injury from sports. At Greenville Podiatry Associates, we have provided foot injury treatment related to sports and other activities for adults and children in the Greenville area since 1986. Almost everyone will experience some pain at some point while playing basketball, football, running, baseball, softball, volleyball or any other activity. Those who increase their activity too quickly are at a greater risk of developing an injury, such as a sprained ankle, fracture or plantar fasciitis. Visiting a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment reduces the risk of further exacerbating the injury, taking even more time away from the sport and leading to future issues. A podiatrist can also go over certain warmup exercises that help to help strengthen the area and prevent problems.
We Care for Sport-Related Pain and Issues
Problems arising in the lower extremities are quite common in a variety of physical activities. These are just some of the injuries that podiatrists routinely see in athletes:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Ingrown toenails
- Stress fractures
- Heel spurs
- Ankle sprains
- Achilles tendonitis (Achilles' heel)
- Shin splints
- Turf toe injuries
The sooner you see a doctor about a suspected injury, the faster you will be back playing your sport at full capacity, as well as learning ways to prevent reinjuring yourself in the future.
