Podiatrists & Sports-Related Foot & Ankle Injuries

Whether you are a professional athlete or play sports just for fun, the demands made on your feet and lower limbs can lead to a range of injuries, including blisters, sprained ankles, torn ligaments, shin splints (leg pain), knee pain, low back pain and other joint or muscle problems. Added to these are common complaints such as corns, calluses and Athlete’s foot. Your running style, poor footwear and even minor limb length differences can also contribute to sports injury.

Visiting a podiatrist at Advanced Foot Care Center should be your fist step towards getting back on your feet after a sports injury. Dr. Velarde can not only help treat your current foot or ankle pain, but provide you with helpful tips to prevent future sports injuries.

Tips for Athletic Foot Care

  • Wash you feet every day and dry them thoroughly
  • Wear only good-quality, well-fitting cotton socks
  • Always use the correct shoe for each sport and surface
  • Get in shape! Being overweight places added stress on the feet
  • Perform stretching exercises for 15-20 minutes before starting and after any activity
  • Wear correct shoes! Footwear should be given the same consideration as any other piece of sporting equipment. Sport shoes should protect as much as possible and be very durable. If running, the shoe should have adequate cushioning in the mid-sole and a flared heel for stability
