Sports Medicine & Dance Medicine
The foot doctors of The Center for Podiatric and Sports Medicine have treated close to 20,000 sports injuries ranging from traumatic injuries to those resulting from wear and tear. We have treated professional Basketball, Soccer, and Tennis players, Olympic athletes, Track and Field WorldÂ and National Champions, Collegiate athletes, Scholastic athletes and there isn’t a sport that doesn’t rely on healthy feet to assure success; regardless of the the level.
The foot doctors goal is to treat the underlying cause as well as the acute problem and get the athlete back to doing what they would like to do. Whether it be participating in their sport or getting back to the gym without pain as quickly as possible.
