If you're an athlete, then you know all about injuries: if you aren't careful when you exercise and practice sports, it is easy to get injured or develop problems. Even if you are careful, extended wear and tear on the body can cause problems and pain. Whether you're a regular athlete or a casual runner, there are many problems your feet may face as you continue your activities.
At Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center, our doctors frequently treat problems and injuries related to athletic and sports injuries. If your involvement in sports or athletic activities causes an injury in your foot or ankle, our doctors can help you get back on your feet and in the game as soon as possible. From plantar fasciitis (heel pain) to capsulitis (ball-of-foot pain), ankle sprains and strains to tendinitis, toenail problems to Achilles pain, and everything in between, the doctors at Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center can help treat your athletic or sports injuries.
We Feel Your Pain
The doctors and staff at Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center understand athletes: among our staff we have hockey players, former soccer players, runners (of both long and short distances), basketball players, and other athletic participants. We've been in your shoes, know what it's like to have an injury, and how to treat it in the best way possible. Most importantly, we understand how important it is to you to be back on your feet as soon as possible. We aim to help you get back in the game at the first possible moment.
Common Foot and Ankle Injuries
There are many injuries, problems, and other sources of discomfort that can arise from participating in athletic activities. The doctors at Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center can treat any of your foot and ankle problems. Just a few common injuries are: ankle sprains or strains, Achilles tendon disorders, heel pain, or neuromas. Each of these can start out as seemingly simple or harmless problems that could go away on their own; however, if left untreated any of these could develop into more serious problems.
It is important to stop as soon as you feel pain or notice problems and visit a podiatrist. Foot and ankle injuries left untreated can develop into serious problems. At the first sign of a problem, stop your activity and visit a podiatrist. The sooner you visit us, the sooner we can help you get up on your feet and back to what you love doing.
The Importance of Footwear
Shoes can make all the difference in whether or not your athletic activities result in an injury. The right shoes can prevent injury, and help you feet stay supported and comfortable for a long time to come. At Raleigh Foot & Ankle Center, we can provide you and your family, even kids, with the guidance you need to make the right decision about shoes, to find a pair that will keep you comfortably on your feet. Ask our podiatry doctors about the right shoes for your activities. They can give you suggestions on what to look for in a shoe for your particular athletic activity, and guide you to recommended shoe stores where specialists will partner with you to find the best shoe for your needs.
