Sports and Soft Tissue Injuries

When walking, each time your heel lifts off the ground it forces the toes to carry one half of your body weight.

The foot absorbs tremendous shearing and loading forces in many sports, the pressure on our feet when running can be as much as four times the runner's body weight. This can easily lead to both acute and chronic lower leg injuries.

 

At Aubrey Podiatry we deal with many different sports, and we understand that different sports require different needs. We have a special interest in sports podiatry and are experienced in dealing with all lower leg related sporting injuries.

 

We will facilitate a treatment plan with you, involving:

A personal interview gathering medical history, previous injures and specific goals

Physical examination, which maybe  followed up by diagnostic tests such as X-rays or ultra sound referral, if indicated.

After examination we will make recommendations for a treatment plan based on your medical history, your tolerance for specific therapies and extent of the injury. We practice with a modern approach to assessment, biomechanical dysfunction, strengths, weakness and contributing factors depending on the extend of the injury.

Aubrey Podiatry has gait analysis facilities that can simply identify any imbalances or overloading with your walking and running and give you the feedback that you need to improve your rehabilitation, increase your performance and educate you on your assessment findings to help  implement strategies to prevent your pain from returning.
