Sports Medicine Q & A

William Street Podiatry Care

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is a specialized branch of podiatry that involves helping athletes and exercise enthusiasts get back into the game. Treatments for sports injuries involve a comprehensive approach where your dedicated podiatrist resolves current pain and inflammation, while simultaneously promoting healing and restoring strength.

Podiatrists, in particular, have to know a lot about all types of exercises, sports, and physical activities that can cause injuries since nearly all of them require you to be on your feet. You need sports medicine intervention not only when an injury occurs, but also if you have lingering pain in your feet or ankles.

When should I see a sports medicine specialist?

It’s important to see a sports medicine specialist if you have a current injury, are continuing to have problems from a prior injury, or are beginning a new sport or activity. Your dedicated podiatrist at William Street Podiatry Care can help if you have — or have previously had — any of the following injuries.

  • Fractures, including stress fractures
  • Ankle sprains
  • Ligament tears
  • Shin splints
  • Achilles tendinitis

The team at William Street Podiatry Care help you recover, even if you have an old injury that just didn’t heal right. No matter how minor or how complex your sports injury may be, you have options for relief at the clinic.

Which sports medicine treatments do I need?

Your sports medicine treatment is entirely tailored to your current injury or condition, previous health history, and specific sport or exercise. While no two sports medicine care plans are the same, some of the most common treatments offered at William Street Podiatry Care include:

  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT)
  • Physical therapy or personalized exercises
  • Custom supportive orthotic inserts

If you have a severe injury, such as a tendon rupture or ligament tear, you might need surgery. With their expertise in modern minimally invasive surgical techniques, the team of board-certified podiatrists at William Street Podiatry Care can help you heal and come back even stronger.
