Foot pain or damage to one of the ligaments, tendons, muscles, or bones of your foot or ankle can make it difficult or impossible for you to perform in your sport of choice. Waiting around for the problem to heal on its own is not an option, so that’s why you should turn to us at Premier Foot & Ankle Center, LLC, where our Piedmont sports medicine lets you take advantage of our skilled and specialized care to get prompt, effective results.
Because of the nature of athletics, all parts of your foot are vulnerable. Running, jumping, pivoting, twisting, and turning are all hard on your feet. But if there were just two areas that are considered most prone, it would be your ankle and your heel. Some of the typical injuries and conditions that develop on or around your heel are plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and Achilles tendinitis. Ankle sprains happen frequently, though the severity of them can vary widely. Our Piedmont sports medicine is focused on diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment all done in a timely manner. In many instances, x-rays are crucial to the speed of the process. Some of the other foot concerns that are generally linked to sports participation are corns, calluses, and blisters; and fungus in the form of athlete’s foot. With our Piedmont sports medicine, we strive to address your difficulties with the simplest and least invasive means that will also assure you of the desired outcome. This can mean the use of shoe orthotics, topical or oral medication, physical therapy, or sometimes just rest. When surgery is necessary, the quicker it is taken care of, the sooner your foot will be back to 100% or as close as can be expected.
