Most sports require not just the use of your feet, but tend to put them under a great deal of stress. And this applies across the board to professional athletes, amateurs, and those of you who are occasional participants. When you have a foot injury or your feet hurt in any way, there is simply no way that you can be at your best. That’s when you should turn to our sports medicine Canova Beach. At the practice of William Harr, DPM, you can be confident in getting the specialized care that will have you back to 100% as quickly as possible.
Some of the most common issues that we address with our sports medicine Canova Beach are heel pain, ankle sprains, Achilles tendinitis, athlete’s foot, and blisters and corns. In all such cases, we urge you to not ignore them or to just attempt to “tough it out.” Discomfort and pain are there as warning signs telling you that there is a problem. And that also extends to itching, burning, and cracking skin as is typical with a fungal infection such as athlete’s foot. An examination is key, and imaging may also be needed, depending on the symptoms that you’re experiencing. The priorities of our sports medicine Canova Beach are first to reach a conclusion as to the nature of your situation. Once a diagnosis has been made, an evaluation is done to determine the best form of treatment. And then that treatment is implemented. Options can range from shoe orthotics (inserts), compression, and rest all the way to medication, injections, physical therapy, and surgery.
