What is Sports Podiatry?
Sports podiatry is a specific field of podiatry focusing on diagnosing, preventing and treating injuries related to sport. It is very important to accurately diagnose the complaint prior to developing a treatment plan. By using the latest assessment techniques, such as gait analysis and video capture software we can diagnose your problem accurately and get you back on track to return to sport as soon as possible.
We work with our patients to develop a structured rehabilitation plan that is strongly focused on getting them back to sport – fast! As podiatrists with a passionate interest in sport, we understand the rigours and demands of training and the desire to return to activity as quickly as possible.
Sports Podiatry can help with
