Sports Podiatry is a sub-speciality which focuses on minimising injury and maximising efficiency in the mechanics of the foot and lower limb, including treating over-use injuries. Soft tissue therapy, trigger point therapy as well as taping form the basis of treatment, which utilises aspects of general and biomechanical Podiatry. Injuries can include ankle sprains, fractures and tears.
Rehabilitation after injury is an important aspect of Sports Podiatry, helping reduce the risk of further damage or reinjury. Injuries including Achilles Tendonitis, bursitis, capsulitis and ankle sprains and strains can all be treated effectively by a Podiatrist.
