Sports-Related Foot and Ankle Injuries

Being active in everyday living is essential to staying healthy. However, too much of a good thing is also detrimental to your cause to remain fit and well. The more common sports injuries involving the feet and ankles that Affiliates in Podiatry in Meredith & Concord, NH, see and treat most often are as follows.

  • Fractures, sprains, tears, strains
  • Heel spurs
  • Calluses, corns
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Ligament injuries

Diagnosing Sports-Related Injuries

As your foot doctors, we must have your medical history, such as,

"Have you had a previous sports injury?"

We need to do a physical examination and look at the bone structure of your feet and ankles through an MRI or X-ray, as this is the only way to determine if you have an exercise-induced injury and what level of damage happened.

Treatment Options for Sports Injuries

We create an individualized healing treatment plan and will give you things you can do at home to help speed up the healing of your injury.  

  • Heat/cold compresses
  • Elevation of the extremity
  • Over-the-counter anti-inflammatories
  • Orthotics 
  • Bracing or tapping your foot and ankle 
  • Provide physical therapy with stretching and exercises created to help strengthen your feet and ankles

Stronger treatment options that we can do in our office include the following healing approaches. 

  • Ultrasound treatment
  • Injections to the damaged area
  • Electrical stimulation to speed healing

You do not have to be a young person to have an exercise injury. This type of injury can happen no matter your age. If you do not seek help, it takes longer for you to heal from this type of injury, and you can do more harm to your foot and ankle, making it more difficult to treat and causing you to miss out on your activity.

When you come to us for help, we can show you how to prevent further injuries by keeping your feet/ankles healthy and strong and remaining uninjured throughout your athletic activities.
