Stop Sport Injuries With Northside-Heights Podiatrists

Sport Injuries By Northside Heights PodiatristsSports Injury and Foot and Ankle Pain Prevention Advice from Your Experienced Podiatrists in Northside-Heights, TX

Amateur and professional athletes need to understand the possibility for sports injuries during the fall season. Even with proper stretching and appropriate footwear, active individuals can experience painful sports injuries that can interfere with athletic plans. Understand the factors for sports injury and foot and ankle pain during fall months from your trusted Northside-Heights podiatrist.

Common Fall Sports and Related Injuries

Children and adults enjoy cooler days in the autumn and may ramp up their sport activities. Football and cheerleading are popular fall sports. Participants place themselves at greater risk of sprains, ligament tears, and soft tissue damage. A ligament sprain can occur suddenly or over time and destabilize the ankle or knee. Strains can take a significant time to heal and your Northside-Heights podiatrists may recommend a variety of treatments based on the severity of your condition.

Running, mountain biking, and cycling are also popular autumn sports that can result in injury. Repetitive and forceful stress on feet and ankles can lead to stress fractures and more severe conditions. Inappropriate footwear, poorly maintained bikes, uneven terrain, slippery surfaces, and fallen leaves can be factors resulting in a sports injury.

Prevent a Sports Injury

Your Northside-Heights podiatrist strongly recommends:

  • Not “walking it off.” A serious injury needs immediate attention and rest to heal properly. Do not continue to push yourself if you feel something give or hear a snap like that of a rubber band.
  • Paying attention to the condition of gear and terrain. Trips and falls can lead to injury and can often be avoided.
  • Properly warming-up before training or practice as more than 60 percent of sports injuries occur during a practice session.
  • Addressing minor injuries and sitting out a game rather than allowing an injury to take you out for the season.

Contact your podiatrists in Northside-Heights for a thorough examination of foot or ankle pain, numbness, stiffness or reduced function immediately to address the source of a possible sports injury.
