Plantar Fasciitis – Runners and those who stand on hard surfaces for extended periods may experience pain in the heel or sole of the foot from plantar fasciitis. It’s important to rule out other problems, such as fractures when making a diagnosis. Once confirmed, strengthening and flexibility through a proper physical therapy regimen often resolves the problem, with steroidal injections used in severe cases. It’s almost impossible to play through the pain of plantar fasciitis so Request a Consultation if you’re experiencing pain.
Sprains and Strains – Everyone gets them, but persistent or recurring sprains and strains shouldn’t be ignored. A personalized treatment regimen can add strength and flexibility precisely where it’s needed. Request a Consultation today and we can get and keep you out of this loop.
Stress Fractures/Hairline Fractures – Activities performed on hard surfaces – including running, tennis and basketball – can result in tiny fractures within weight-bearing bones. Often invisible in x-rays, a proper diagnosis by a trained expert is important. Rest is essential – as is a proper rehabilitation plan to strengthen and regain flexibility in muscles. It’s important to treat stress and hairline fractures promptly, before further damage occurs, so Request a Consultation today.
