Our Approach to Sports Medicine
Our Sports Medicine approach focuses on understanding, managing, and preventing lower extremity sports and fitness injuries. The foot and ankle are complex structures that handle excessive amounts of force.
We strive to promote a healthy approach to fitness with our expertise of biomechanics, functional analysis, and field experience. No matter your level of athleticism or the condition you’re up against, we can address it. As athletes ourselves, we create game plans that allow you to return to sports as quickly and safely as possible.
Accidents happen, but they shouldn’t keep you from engaging in the activities you love.
Interventional programs have been shown to reduce injury rates by up to 90%, which is why we always keep repression of future injuries in mind. Our treatment includes strengthening exercises, therapy recommendations, and protective gear suggestions. Properly supported feet are what get you through the game. We’ll fit you with the best orthotics and shoe modifications to help you perform.
We’ve got your back while you’re getting the win. Score.
Sports Injuries We Treat
Sometimes, we take “push yourself” a little too seriously. Without medical attention, overuse injuries run the risk of becoming more wounded. We treat stress fractures, Achilles tendonitis, sesamoiditis, and generalized tendonitis.
The more people on the field, the more hectic it can get. Fractures, breaks, and dislocations of the foot and ankle happen frequently. The wrong twist can strain a tendon or sprain a ligament. Even minor jams resulting in turf toe need care.
Toe and Toe Nail Conditions
It’s no surprise that with increased use, your feet take a hit. Common toe conditions include hallux rigidus, hammertoes, bunions, calluses, and blisters. Toenails may also become injured, leading to ingrown toenails, runner’s toenail (blood blister or subungual hematoma), and fungal infections like athlete’s foot (tinea pedis).
Other Chronic Conditions
Chronic conditions cause great frustration amongst athletes. Their mild symptoms and low-level pain often go ignored and untreated until it’s too late. Dr. Nik’s team understands, and we’re here to help. We treat bursitis (of the foot, ankle, and Achilles), arthritis, peripheral neuropathies, plantar fasciitis, and deformities of the foot and arch that require orthotics.
