Whether you’re a recreational athlete just looking to stay fit, or a serious competitor looking to push yourself and your performance to the limit, foot and ankle sports injuries are always a concern. They don’t always come as an “ouch!” moment that sends you tumbling to the ground, either. Overuse injuries that grind you down slowly over time are just as much a concern.
Either way, an injury to your feet or ankles can be a major obstacle to staying fit, staying healthy, and accomplishing your goals—not only on the field, but in your day-to-day life, too. Worse, if you do nothing about the problem, you drastically increase the risk of re-injury, or developing chronic problems. It’s always best to see us early after your injury to ensure you get a quick, accurate diagnosis and are on the path to recovery as soon as possible!
