An athlete's feet are essential to their health and overall well-being. A ton of force travels through your bones and tissues every time your foot hits the ground. A sports podiatrist manages the foot care that impacts an athlete's overall health by addressing the overall wear and tear on the feet.
The anatomy of the foot is complicated and often requires extensive evaluation before diagnosing and treating an injury. The type of sport an athlete performs in can make a treatment plan a challenging and rigorous process.
The goal of many sports doctors is to return their patients to their full level of health by healing their injuries and preventing future ones from impeding their patient's performance.
