For the recreational or elite level athlete who wants to avoid injury and maximize performance!
Sports podiatry covers mainly two areas:
- Treatment and prevention of foot and lower limp overuse injuries
- Mechanical performance enhancement to minimize your risk of injury and to maximize your sports performance.
Our sports podiatrist can assess via gait analysis and specific testing whether your leg alignment and foot stability is good enough to achieve your best possible sports performance. Once the source of the problem is found a treatment plan will be set up for you. Our Podiatrist works closely together with our Physiotherapists and Massage therapist to give you the optimal care you need to recover from your injury!
Sportspeople are often prescribed orthotics by their podiatrist to help maximise their performance, as well as to address mechanical problems.
