The dramatic increase in sporting activity over the last 30 years has brought with it a wide range of injuries. Although some of these injuries can be quite serious and require surgery, the majority of our more low-grade but can prevent or inhibit exercise. There is nothing more frustrating to anyone who enjoys sports to have to stop participating and lose fitness.
Unfortunately, many people take up sport without appropriate training or equipment (including shoes). In addition, it is common for people to ignore discomfort in the belief that this will settle only to find it becomes far worse and more chronic. This generally means that recovery and treatment will take longer. There is usually a loss of function, quite often more than pre-exercise, which means that careful attention to appropriate rehabilitation is necessary.
Whilst podiatrists treat large numbers of sports patients, a number of professionals (e.g. physiotherapy) are often required for an effective recovery. At Premier Podiatry we liaise with a wide range of professionals all of them are committed to high-quality treatment.
Whilst a high percentage of our patients are recreational sports men and women, we work with the professional and elite. A selection of the sports are:
Football, rugby, cricket, athletics, badminton, tennis, triathlon, hockey, golf, dancing.
