Love Your Sport? Then Don't Wait When You Have a Sports Injury!

Houston podiatrist treats sports injuries of the foot and ankleInjuries are frustrating, but whether you are a serious athlete or a weekend warrior, whether you play on your high school team or enjoy a pickup game at the YMCA, you will likely experience injury at some time.  At Foot & Ankle Institute of Texas we treat sports and fitness related injuries to the feet and lower extremities on a daily basis. Most commonly, we work with runners, cyclists, gymnasts, dancers, and soccer, football, baseball, basketball, and tennis players.

The most common injuries resulting from overuse are stress fractures, heel pain, Achilles tendinitis, ankle sprains, and Morton's neuromas. While these conditions can be treated without casts or surgery, they do require close medical supervision. Very often, the treatment of sports injuries begin with an understanding of the underlying biomechanics that causes them. Your Houston sports podiatrist will perform a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation to determine how to best control these biomechanical forces, to allow for a quick recovery and to prevent further injury.

If left untreated or if exercise is resumed prematurely, the injury can be further aggravated. Our goal is to work together with you to minimize your downtime, if any, and get you healed as quickly as possibly. We will also examine your training habits and take measures to prevent injuries from reoccurring. And know this…we won’t make you stop your training unless it is absolutely necessary.
