SPORTS PODIATRY

 

People who practise sports put stress—often inappropriately—on their bone mass, ligaments and foot muscles. Improper footwear and poor training methods can cause or aggravate a variety of articulation and muscle problems. Accidents happen easily!

 

Put the odds on your side by setting up a preventive examination! Your podiatrist will begin with a biomechanical evaluation to determine your hip, knee, ankle and foot motion, followed by an evaluation of your posture in static and dynamic positions.

 

Of course, your podiatrist can also evaluate your condition following a sports trauma. X‑rays can be used to check whether you have suffered a fracture or other pathology.

 

Be sure to contact your podiatrist if you experience any of these problems:

 

Acute injury or trauma

 

Chronic injury

 

Postural or biomechanical issues
