PODIATRIST STATES THAT HEEL PAIN IN LACROSSE PLAYERS IS COMMON

 

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. ROBERT WEISS STATES, "ONE OF THE MOST COMMON LACROSSE INJURIES WE HAVE SEEN IS IN RELATION TO HEEL PAIN.  THIS PROBLEM IS OFTEN CAUSED BY A CONDITION KNOWN AS APOPHYSITIS OF THE CALCANEUS (HEEL BONE) OR SEVER'S DISEASE.  IN ADDITION TO THE TRAUMA AND STRESS CREATED BY LACROSSE AND OTHER RUNNING SPORTS, THERE ARE OTHER CONTRIBUTING FACTORS THAT RESULT IN THE INFLAMMATION OF THE GROWTH PLATE. THESE INCLUDE BIOMECHANICAL FOOT IMBALANCES OF ABNORMAL PRONATION OR A HIGH-ARCHED FOOT, CLEATED OR IMPROPERLY FITTING SHOES, AND IMPROPER TRAINING METHODS."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TREATING CONDITIONS SUCH AS THIS SUCCESSFULLY SINCE 1980.  THE MAIN THING THAT SETS OUR TORONTO FOOT CLINIC APART FROM MANY OTHERS IS THAT WE PRACTICE CONSERVATIVE FOOT CARE WHERE WE AVOID SURGERY AND MEDICATIONS AT ALL COSTS.  DO NO HARM IS OUR MOTTO AS THERE IS NO SURGICAL PROCEDURE OR DRUG THAT DOES NOT HAVE SIDE-EFFECTS AND IN SOME CASES LIFE THREATENING.  NEVER WORTH THE RISK IF THEY CAN BE AVOIDED.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE, FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
