Skater is off the Ice after Suffering Foot Injury
posted: Nov 05, 2013.
According to Eurosport, figure skater Yuna Kim will need a 6 week recovery after injuring one of the metatarsals in her right foot. “During training Yuna felt a lot of pain in her right foot,” says a Korea Skating Union official.
“The diagnosis she received is that she would need around six weeks to recover and will also require physio after she returns.” The recovery time Kim will need will possibly force her to miss both grand prix events, reports KpopStarz. With Japanese rival Miki Ando returning, Kim’s dominance over the ice may be at risk.
Facing such an injury can be daunting, but with proper care returning to sports and activities is not impossible. Receiving treatment from a chiropodist such as Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotics Clinics could help you manage your injury as well as provide solutions for how to get back into the sports you enjoy.
