Impact & Sports Injuries in Wappingers Falls, NY
Get Back Into the Action With 5-Star-Rated Podiatric Care
A podiatrist may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about sports and your athletic ability, but keeping your body in its strongest state involves every part, including your feet and ankles. Whether you play football, run, or dance, your feet are vital to your success as an athlete. Here at Hollowbrook Foot Specialists, P.C. we strive to offer the best treatment possible for impact & sports injuries in Wappingers Falls, NY—so that you can make sure you’re at the top of your game.
Whether your injury is simple or complicated, our experienced team treats athletes of all ages and levels, helping them overcome foot and ankle issues including:
Achilles tendinitis is an injury that happens when someone stresses the band of tissue that connects their heel bone to the calf muscles at the back of their lower leg (the Achilles tendon).
Usually, Achilles tendinitis happens when runners or athletes suddenly start to run faster or play harder than usual. Middle-aged people who play tennis or sports like basketball on the weekends can also be at risk. People who try to treat their injury at home without the help of a podiatrist in (location) risk making the problem worse. A more serious case of Achilles tendinitis can lead to tearing or rupturing the tendon, so it is important to see a podiatrist right away for an evaluation if you or someone you love starts feeling pain after running or other sports activities.
Sprained ankles need quick and accurate treatment from an experienced podiatrist. Too often, patients don’t get the proper treatment they need for their ankle sprains, and we see additional damage done to the ankle. Instability is the most common symptom. Timing is everything when treating a sprained ankle injury, so the sooner you see our podiatrist, the sooner you can get back to your favorite activities.
A crush injury occurs when a heavy object, such as machinery, falls on your foot. Or maybe your child plays sports and someone stomps on their foot, causing them significant pain. Whatever the cause of the crush injury, our expert podiatrist can help ensure you get the right treatment so it heals properly. Left untreated, it could lead to complications such as bruising, broken bones, internal bleeding, nerve damage, and more.
Other conditions we treat:
- Plantar fasciitis or other undiagnosed heel pain
- Ingrown toenails
- Metatarsal pain
- Runner’s foot
- Calluses and/or blisters
- Issues with balance and/or gait (biomechanical issues)
- Morton’s neuroma
- Various heel and ankle pain issues
The Right Diagnosis for the Right Treatment Plan
Through the use of a comprehensive physical exam, patient history, list of symptoms, and medical imaging tests such as x-rays and MRIs, our podiatrist can diagnose your impact or sports injury and confer with you to come up with a treatment plan unique to your specific needs. When at all possible, we postpone surgery in favor of non-surgical treatments that range from rest to orthotic inserts to physical therapy.
