Sports injuries cause musculoskeletal damage when you’re playing sports or training. The parts of your musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, nerves, connective tissues, and cartilage) work in harmony to enable free movement. Sports injuries are a common cause of damage to these structures.
Because feet and ankles bear your entire weight (and more when you run and jump), sports injuries are common. Podiatrists (foot doctors) receive extensive, focused training on feet biomechanics (how the joints move when you walk and run). This enables them to properly diagnose and treat sports injuries.
The Foot and Ankle Specialists of The Woodlands team works with many running clubs, sports trainers, specialty shoe stores, and gyms in the local community to provide you with the most up-to-date resources for all your sports medicine needs.
Common foot and ankle sports injuries include:
You can also suffer these injuries in everyday life from falls, repetitive strain or overuse at work, and other nonsporting situations.
