Podiatry With a Difference

Here at Pinnacle Sports Podiatry, we offer an exceptional level of care to all patients within our clinic. We achieve such a standard by allocating a dedicated hour to each initial assessment, providing our podiatrists with the opportunity to carefully listen, understand and diagnose each unique injury or concern. For us, it’s important that we build a holistic foundation of each patient’s concerns before rushing into a treatment plan for foot and ankle injuries – we endeavour to first fully understand the many factors that may be causing you pain.

Whether you’re suffering from a sports injury or any lower limb concern, your podiatrist will take the time to explain your injury, the contributing factors, and provide a solution-based treatment plan. At Pinnacle Sports Podiatrist Sydney, our treatment plans are designed to provide lasting solutions to your problems.

Why Would I Need to See A Sports Podiatrist in Sydney?

Searching for Podiatrist Near Me can bring up hundreds of different results, so why choose Pinnacle? Our Sydney podiatry team 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 foot and lower leg sports injuries and concerns. Whether it be heel pain, plantar warts, forefoot pain, or other foot problems associated with sport, a podiatrist will get you back on track. 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’!
  • Poor recovery and heightened tissue sensitivity due to work, family commitments, diet, stress, poor/reduced sleep hours etc.
  • 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 reported in the literature (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, 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, faster. 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. As your go-to Sydney podiatry team, we look forward to helping you get back on your feet and back to the sport or physical activity you want to be doing!
