Sports Medicine is always an exciting adventure. There are so many individual sports played that unfortunately have their own unique forms of injuries. It is our challenge to review and understand the nature and mechanics of the injury involved. We will carefully pick apart what occurred either at the time of occurrence or was it something done in the past that is now raising its ugly head? Having participated and enjoying most sports, this is especially an interest in our practice.
Some foot related sports injuries we treat are:
ACL Sprains- The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a ligament involved in knee stabilization. An ACL rupture can occur when the foot is planted and the knee twists to change direction.
Ankle Sprain- The ligaments that hold the ankle bones in place can easily be overstretched.
Shin Splints- The tissue that attaches the muscles of your lower leg to the shin bone may be pulling away from the bone, or it may be inflamed from overuse.
