Sports Medicine Q & A

What is sports medicine?

Sports medicine is a medical specialty that focuses on the health and well-being of active individuals.

 

Sports medicine physicians, like the podiatrists at Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists, have advanced training to diagnose and treat sports injuries, as well as prevent them from happening again.

What foot and ankle conditions benefit from sports medicine?

Sports injuries may affect any part of your body, but your feet and ankles may be especially vulnerable if you play high-impact sports like football, basketball, or tennis.

 

Athletes can suffer from a range of foot and ankle conditions, but they can get expert sports medicine care at Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists. The team treats these and many other sports injuries:

 
  • Ankle sprains
  • Turf toe: A sprain in the main joint in the big toe
  • Plantar plate injuries: A tear in the ligament at the back of the heel
  • Sesamoiditis: Inflammation or rupture of the two bones under the big toe
  • Stress fractures
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Posterior tibial tendonitis: Inflammation of the calf tendon in the foot
 

You may also benefit from sports medicine at Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists if you have a foot condition that affects your athletic performance, such as flat feet or a high arch. These foot conditions may affect your gait and cause foot pain. 

What can I expect during a sports medicine consultation?

You can expect a patient-centered examination when you visit Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists for a sports medicine consultation. The team asks detailed questions about your concerns and goals.

 

If you have an injury, they review your symptoms and the events that led up to the injury. The team also asks about your typical workout routine and the type of shoewear you use. They examine your injury and take X-rays, CT scans, or an MRI to assess the severity of your injury. 

 

The team develops a personalized treatment plan to heal your injury as quickly and safely as possible. Treatment may include:

 
  • Rest, ice, elevation, and compression (RICE)
  • Activity modification
  • Splinting or bracing
  • Physical therapy
  • Custom orthotics
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Injection therapy
 

The team also performs surgery when needed to treat sports injuries. The board-certified foot and ankle surgeons use the most advanced tools and techniques so you get the best outcomes.

Part of your sports medicine care at Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists also focuses on injury prevention.
