Why you need a sports podiatrist

If you’re involved in any kind of sport, then it’s important that you see a sports podiatrist if you have any lower limb pain or injury. Sports podiatrists can detect and diagnose problems before they get worse, so you don’t have to worry about having an injury that could keep you out of practice or playing for longer than necessary.
Athletes and sports people are at risk of developing overuse injuries and conditions, which can be very painful and debilitating. Treatment programmes of stretching and strengthening can help to prevent to rehabilitate your body. You may also be eligible for customised orthotics as a treatment to balance and provide support for the foot during physical activity. The benefits of orthotics for athletes and sports people include:
  • Reducing pain caused by overuse injuries like shin splints, plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis
  • Improving balance and stability in your foot, ankle, knees and hip joints
  • Some people mention it gives them the feeling of having more power in your legs with every step you take

Orthotics are inserts that help to address specific biomechanical issues that may be present in the foot or lower leg, such as pronation or supination. They can be used in combination with pretty much any shoe you have, for enhanced performance and comfort during physical activity.

Orthotics are designed to support and align your feet, knees, hips, and back so that you can focus on what matters most—your performance. And if you’re an athlete or a sports person, orthotics can be especially helpful because they can help prevent injuries by supporting your joints while they’re under stress.
