At Bankstown podiatry clinic we understand that sports injuries do more than interrupt the game. They can cause great pain and also invite problems later in life. If an injury is left undiagnosed and untreated it can lead to much more serious complications like osteoarthritis, fractures and more.
Sports podiatry provides a wide range of treatment options for sports related injuries ranging from Achilles tendonitis, to anterior knee pains, to joint strains, to shin splints to muscle tears.
Most injuries derive from biomechanical irregularities, so rather than treating just the symptoms our experienced Sydney sports podiatrists will complete a biomechanical assessment to effectively identify the cause of the problem before beginning corrective procedures.
This will help ensure that the condition does not pop up again with our sports podiatry services.
Treatment for sports injuries differs from patient to patient. It is largely dependent on the severity of the condition, but usually involves orthotic therapy; custom inserts to help realign the body’s biomechanical structure and to correct musculoskeletal complaints.
Additionally the type of sport played and how the injury occurred will affect the treatment plan. Runners will likely experience different problems from others while those in contact sports can often experience problems as a result of trauma.
Whatever the cause our sports podiatrists are able to isolate and determine the optimum treatment plan and will always endeavour to get you back on your feet as fast as possible.
