Sports Medicine Q & A

Midtown Foot Care

What injuries does sports medicine treat?

Any injury to the lower legs, feet, and toes require professional treatment. Once you have an injury, you are likely to injure yourself in the same way if proper diagnosis and follow up care are not given. Sports medicine can help treat the following foot injuries typically associated with athletes:

  • Sprains
  • Knee overuse
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Shin splints
  • Stress fractures
  • Turf toe

The expert team at Midtown Foot Care has tools to help athletes avoid further injury and speed recovery, and can treat a wide range of injuries.

Does sports medicine include physical therapy?

Sports medicine often includes physical therapy. Once the injury is healed, physical therapy increases strength and flexibility in the injured area.  Preventing future injuries will also be a focus of the doctors at Midtown Foot Care. If you are already injured or are worried about another injury occurring, contact them today.

Who should consider sports medicine treatment?

No two injuries are the same, just as no two treatment plans are the same. Professional, college, or recreational athletes can benefit from sports medicine treatment. Quick and healthy recovery from sports injuries is vital in returning to participating in your sport. Follow up care and regular exams will ensure any athlete can recover from most sports injuries. The doctors at Midtown Foot Care will recommend the best treatment options for you depending on your injury and sport.
