For nearly every sport or athletic activity, no matter how young or old you are, your feet take a brunt of the beating. Running, jumping, and cutting back and forth can exert 3-4 times the amount of a person’s body weight on the feet and ankles. Additionally, direct impacts from tackles and other physical contact can create severe trauma leading to injuries such as fractures, contusions, and sprains.
Common athletic foot injuries include:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Stress fractures
- Turf toe
Kansas City Foot Specialists approaches sports injuries with conservative, non-invasive treatments whenever possible. However, should you require surgery to treat your condition, the Surgery Center of Blue Valley is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for our staff to provide the high-quality surgical services you need.
If you’ve suffered a sports-related foot injury, schedule an appointment with one of our podiatrists to discuss your treatment options.
