SPORTS INJURIES & REHABILITATION
Any pain is abnormal and should be addressed. If you are experiencing pain in the foot and ankle, a Chiropodist is a specialist in this area and can help determine causes and address your concerns. The presence of pain can take an athlete away from their training and can cause them to perform at lower levels than they are capable of. Common sports injuries that we see at the Royal City Foot Clinic include ankle sprains, turf toe, plantar fasciitis, achilles tendon pain, Haglund's deformity, ankle instability, runner's toe etc. Royal City Foot Clinic wants to get you back out there doing what you love, there are many ways we can help!
Depending on the severity of the injury and the patient, each treatment plan will be unique and tailored with regards to timeline, sport engagement and ultimate treatment goals. All plans will include education, and prevention techniques in addition to the rehabilitative measures. Therapeutic modalities may be used depending on the injuring. Royal City Foot Clinic is equipped with many state of the art therapeutic modalities, including laser and ultrasound. Taping techniques may be taught to the patient and if the injury is severe, invasive procedures may be required (injections or surgery). A patient may also be prescribed medication such as anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs).
Without proper treatment, recurring injuries may occur as an athlete compensates for the primary injury. Performance tends to suffer and it can take longer to return to the sport. Our goal is to get you back to your sport healthy and stronger to prevent recurrence or further injury.
