Diagnose Your Sports Injury
Every 25 seconds a child goes to the emergency room because of a sports injury. These young patients are taken to a hospital ER because scared parents don’t know where else to turn for expert diagnosis. But let’s face it – no one likes to sit in the waiting room for hours on end or take a trip to a hospital if they can avoid it.
The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine offers a modern, relaxing facility with all the diagnostic tools needed to make a quick and accurate diagnosis, including:
- Computerized gait analysis
We have treated everything from acute emergencies like compound fractures, sprains, and strains to chronic overuse injuries like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and shin splints. Our specialists have in-depth knowledge of sports injuries related to running, lacrosse, soccer, basketball, baseball, dance, gymnastics, football, hockey, tennis, and swimming.
Part of what makes us different from a general practitioner is that we go to great lengths to determine the extent and underlying cause of the injury, rather than simply treating the symptoms. We don’t just slap a cast on a fracture – we aim to minimize the damage that sometimes occurs during the long healing process through active rehabilitation.
We view surgery as a last resort and prefer to start with conservative measures including high-tech non-invasive therapies. However, we make concessions for athletes who suffer from chronic pain and re-injury. We understand how frustrating ineffective treatments can be. You can trust us to provide the best treatment sports medicine has to offer.
