TORONTO SPORTS RELATED INJURIES
posted: Apr 06, 2014.
In many instances the treatment of sports related injuries begins with understanding the underlying biomechanics of their cause.
|There is such an array of these injuries that space does not permit outlining all of them. The more common injuries include:|
Our advice to all athletes is to incorporate a rigorous stretching program into your workout. The adage of "no pain, no gain" could not be further from the truth. Pain is a warning sign; and if the pain is recurrent and ignored, then the amateur athlete is asking for trouble and, possibly, significant down time from his or her sport or exercise program.
You should choose your athletic shoes with care and be timely in replacing them when they wear out. A good pair of over-the-counter insoles is often useful for minor areas of foot irritation. Icing the area can also be useful. If your pain persists, make an appointment and allow us to evaluate your condition and make recommendations for your treatment. Many sports problems are also treated with custom orthotics. Dr. Hardy's Toronto Foot Clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics treats a lot of patients with foot related sports injuries described above. If you or a loved one requires honest, competent advice or quality foot care or orthotics, please do not hesitate to contact us at 416-465-8737.
