The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine

Expert Manhattan Foot and Ankle Clinic Treats Sports Injury in New York

New York City boasts many sports medicine doctors, orthopedists, and general practitioners who diagnose and treat sports injuries. But, frankly, some of them are stuck in the Stone Age. No one wants to hear: “Go home, rest, ice it, wear this bandage, and put your feet up” when you’ve had chronic pain for more than a month. By the same token, no one wants to be rushed into surgery, either.

The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine, located at 111 East 88th Street in Manhattan, NY 10128, understands what you’ve been through and your needs. We offer a new approach to sports injury treatment using the latest technology to get you back on your feet as efficiently as possible.
