Sport Medicine / Rehabilitation
Athletes who sustain any type of foot or ankle injury will require a thorough assessment and treatment plan to return to sport. A return to such activities must be gradual and can take several weeks to months. Progress must also be precise to ensure that individuals feel comfortable returning to regular participation and to minimize the chances of recurring injuries. One does not always have to be injured to consult a Chiropodist; rather, consultation can be for an assessment of an individuals’ foot mechanics and footwear to help improve an athlete’s game or to prevent the risk of future injuries.
