UFC Champion Jon Jones is taking baby steps to rehab his toe dislocation he suffered following a first-round knockout of Chael Sonnen at UFC 159.  Jones had his toe repaired and sent a picture to his Twitter followers stating, “Got my big toe back intact.”

For jones the hardest part during the healing process is rehab, as he tries not to do anything for weeks according to columnist Joseph Zucker. Zucker adds, even if Jones would like to return sooner than later, it would only do more damage to his toe. This would make the injury much more difficult to rehab, and can make it difficult to heal.

If you are an athlete who has suffered a foot injury, consider seeking the care of a chiropodist like Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics. Dr. Hardy will be able to help speed up your rehabilitation process effectively, minimizing the risk of re-injuring the affected area.

Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes

Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recovery and get back to the sport they love. To do this, podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted so the injured athlete can get back onto the field as soon as possible. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through the motions of physical therapy or rehabilitation is a necessary process to keeping that injury at bay.

Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?

If an athlete gets a foot injury, it is essential to receive foot rehabilitation to ensure proper healing. Sports therapists are more focused on athletic-related injuries than general physical therapists. It is important for an athlete to become healed properly because if they attempt to get back into their game before they are physically well, they could re-aggravate the original injury or even suffer a new one due to their weakened state.

Physical Therapy Gives Hope

Physical therapy helps to keep athletes as active as they are physically capable, which will get them ready for their return once their feet become healed. Physical therapy often gives hope to athletes. It is best to seek out rehabilitation as soon as possible so there are better chances for a full recovery, no matter how severe or minor the injury is.

HILLARY BRENNER STATES, "AFTER COMPLETING A TOE SHORTENING PROCEDURE FOR A PATIENT WHO WAS CONSTANTLY IN PAIN, SHE NOTICED AN INFLUX OF WOMEN ASKING HER TO PROVIDE TOE SHORTENING SERVICES FOR THEMSELVES -- FOR COMPLETELY COSMETIC PURPOSES."  SHE TURNED THEM ALL DOWN.  SHE STATES, " I ONLY DO SURGERIES FOR PEOPLE HAVING PAIN."  BRENNER IS A PODIATRIC SURGEON AND A MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION.  "IF YOU ARE NOT IN PAIN, YOU DON'T HAVE SURGERY."

PODIATRIST DR. WILLIAM SPIELFOGEL, THE HEAD OF PODIATRY AT LENNOX HILL HOSPITAL IN NEW YORK AND A MEMBER OF THE NEW YORK STATE PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION STATES, "IN PODIATRIST BRENNER'S PATIENT'S CASE, THE ESPECIALLY ELONGATED TOE WAS CAUSING CORNS AND ULCERS THAT COULD GET INFECTED.  BOTH DOCTORS SAID THAT WHEN THEY DECIDE TO TAKE ON FOOT SURGERY PATIENTS, IT IS BECAUSE THERE IS A MEDICAL NEED."

ILLINOIS PODIATRIST STATES, "FASHION-CONSCIOUS AMERICAN WOMEN ARE GETTING THEIR PINKY TOES LOPPED OFF SO THEY CAN FIT INTO EXPENSIVE HIGH HEELS.  WHY DON'T WE CALL IT WHAT IT IS: MUTILATION FOR FASHION.  THANK GOD IT'S NOT BEING DONE IN ILLINOIS.  WE HAVE VERY RESPONSIBLE PODIATRISTS IN ILLINOIS.  I WON'T DO IT, AND NO PODIATRIST I KNOW WOULD DO IT.  THIS STARTED AS AN EAST COAST THING THING, THEN IT BECAME A WEST COAST THING, BUT NOT HERE.  NOT IN CHICAGO."

PODIATRIST BYRNES STATES, "SOMETIMES THE PINKY TOE IS CUT DOWN.  AND OTHER TIMES THE BONES IN THE LONGEST TOES ARE REMOVED, ALTHOUGH IF YOU REMOVE TOO MUCH, AND TRY TO PUT A SOCK ON, YOUR TOE COULD FOLD OVER AND YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT.  SOME PEOPLE NEED SUCH SURGERY, TO REPAIR STRUCTURAL DAMAGE, TO RELIEVE PAIN, BUT WE DON'T DO IT FOR FASHION TO FIT INTO FASHION SHOES.  YET AREN'T CHICAGO WOMEN AS STYLISH AS THE FLYOVER PEOPLE FROM NEW YORK AND LA.  SURE THEY'RE FASHIONABLE, THEY ARE JUST NOT CRAZY."
