What Is Sports Podiatry?

Podiatry is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnosis and medical, surgical, mechanical, physical and adjunctive treatment of the diseases, injuries, and defects of the foot and lower limb.

 

Sports Podiatry concentrates on the musculoskeletal, biomechanical and sports medicine aspect of podiatry.  Common services include accurate injury diagnosis,  injury management, biomechanical assessment, footwear prescription and functional orthotic therapy.

 

Maybe its caused by the way you walk? Maybe its the shoes? Why is the injury not showing signs of recovery? 

 

Sports Podiatrists offer conservative treatment options that are often overlooked or not understood by other practitioners.
