Why Would I Need to See A Sports Podiatrist in Sydney?
Our sports podiatrists deal directly with sports injuries, caused by physical activity. There can be many contributing factors for the development of a sports injury. Sports podiatrists manage the pain, treatment and prevention of lower limb sports injuries and concerns. Depending on the physical activity you’re undertaking, a sports injury is typically caused by:
- Training load errors – not getting the balance between exercise and recovery right. This is also known as ‘too much too soon’.
- Not recovering properly due to work, family commitments, diet, stress etc.
- Not warming up properly before exercising or playing sport
- Using poor or inadequate equipment (running shoes, gym equipment etc.)
- Poor technique
- Structural or biomechanical abnormalities
- Hormonal status
What Are the Different Types of Sports Injuries?
Sports injuries may be acute or chronic. An acute sports injury occurs as a result of a sudden impact or an awkward movement. Acute sports injuries include muscle tears, sprained ankles and sudden trauma to the tissue. The symptoms of an acute sports injury will present almost immediately (swelling, inflammation, bruising).
Chronic sports injuries come to fruition as a result of repeated overuse in the form of microtrauma and resultant pain, which is often insidious in onset. Chronic injuries develop over time, from repetitive load and stress to our musculoskeletal system, without adequate time to recover and rebuild between exercise bouts. Chronic injuries are common in sports like long-distance running, swimming and cycling. In fact, distance running is one of the most injury prone activities you can do if you look at the injury rates (up to 80% of runners sustain an injury over a 12 month period). Chronic sports injuries will often not improve with rest alone and do best with a plan in place to identify all the causative factors and so they can be specifically addressed in management. Common chronic sports injuries we see include Achilles tendonitis, stress fractures and shin splints.
Whether you’re dealing with acute or chronic sports injuries, our passionate team of Sydney Sports Podiatrists are committed to providing a comprehensive treatment plan and getting you back on your feet. Starting with a thorough chat about your concerns (why you’ve come to see us) and an extensive assessment of your injury, we are able to best tailor an individual plan.
