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 back 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. 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 and 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.
