Sports put a lot of stress on your feet. Running, jumping, planting, and pivoting all require that your feet are strong and healthy. Our sports medicine in Long Beach NY want to keep your feet that way, or return them to their optimal state of wellness if you’re experiencing any difficulties. First thing is accurate diagnosis, without which it is impossible to identify the appropriate treatment. Fortunately, as a specialist with a great deal of experience in this area, our podiatrist can be counted on to determine the precise nature of your condition. Pain in your feet, especially in the heel, can often be mitigated with the use of shoe orthotics (inserts),including ones that are custom made. More supportive wear is also highly recommended. Our sports medicine in Long Beach NY can also help with inflamed tendons, which may also have small tears in them. This is the condition called achilles tendonitis. Stretching exercises and physical therapy are often effective. Or if the tendon is completely torn, you may need surgery to repair it. Athlete’s foot is a fungal condition that can spread easily. Anti-fungal medication is the standard treatment. And with corns, blisters, and calluses, the solution may be as simple as applying a cream or ointment. Trimming them or removing them are also options.
