Foot Clinic Sports Podiatry
Professional Podiatry services for athletes and sports clubs
Whether you are a professional athlete or play sport 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.
Podiatry can help with the superficial problems of sport such as blisters, bruised toe nails (subungual haematomas), fungal skin infections (athlete’s foot/Tinea Pedis) and hard skin (callus) and corns.
Specialist podiatrists at Foot Clinic NI can also assess and treat injuries alongside checking your running or walking style (gait) known as your biomechanics. The foot mechanics can contribute to some of the common injuries that are seen with running and sport.
Getting this assessed in detail can help to treat injuries. It is also a sensible approach to get this assessed regularly as highlighting potential frailties in your mechanics can prevent problems from occurring in the first place.
