Injuries From Sports

Here at the Advanced Foot and Ankle Institute of Georgia, we specialize in helping athletes learn more about their foot and ankle pain. Whether your condition is new or old we can diagnose and treat a wide variety of various podiatric concerns right here in our state-of-the-art facility.

Cardiovascular Exercise With Impact

If you perform cardiovascular exercise to stay in shape, these activities certainly put a lot of stress and pressure on your feet. In these scenarios, we urge all participants to wear properly cushioned shoes to cut down on the force that can exceed up to six times the force of gravity alone! Additionally, if you’ve suffered an injury from this type of exercise, we will treat your problem in the most efficient manner to have you back on your feet as soon as possible.

Gymnastics

It’s no secret that many athletes who practice this sport are constantly putting stress on their feet and ankles. Whether it’s jumping, flipping, or rebounding off a surface – it’s easy to experience a number of different issues when involved in this activity. From the common ankle sprain to more advanced conditions like plantar fasciitis, we will help you learn how to treat and prevent your pain from reoccurring in the future.

Team Sports

Whether it’s football, hockey, rugby, or lacrosse – we’ve seen sports injuries from team sport activities of all kinds. Keep in mind that regardless of your sport or physical activity – proper stretching and footwear play a very important role in preventing injury to your feet and ankles. If practicing or playing on an artificial surface, use extra caution as these can enable sprains, fractures, and tears more than usual.
