With 5-Star-Rated Care for Sports Injuries, Getting Sidelined in Auburn, AL, is Not an Option.

Are you feeling a little slower on the basketball or tennis courts lately? Are you icing your feet after each training session but still have unexplained swelling? Suppose you suspect your athletic prowess is being hindered by a foot. In that case, our board-certified podiatrist and his team have the experience and expertise to treat sports injuries in Auburn, AL —so you can get back into action as soon as possible.

From simple to complicated, Auburn Foot Care Center treats athletes of all ages and levels, helping them recover from foot issues that include:

Ankle Sprain

An ankle sprain is one of the most common injuries across the wide range of sports. From baseball to football to running, spraining your ankle is exceptionally easy to occur. As Auburn, Alabama’s best foot and sports injury treatment facility, Auburn Foot Care has plenty of ways to treat the smallest of issues.

Auburn Foot Care knows that getting back to your sport of choice is paramount for you if you enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle. That’s why it’s valuable to us to treat your ankle sprain with the same level of care as any other type of injury.

What is a Sprained Ankle?

A sprained ankle occurs when you stretch the ligaments of your ankle beyond what they can do. Rips and tears in the ligaments can form, causing various issues such as swelling and localized pain. Spraining your ankle can make it difficult for you to walk or put weight on the damaged ankle.

How We Treat Ankle Sprains

The specialists at Auburn Foot Care know that the best method of treatment starts with the first consultation. When you arrive at our clinic, your specialist will learn about how the injury occurred, where the pain is located, and how we can best treat it using traditional and innovative techniques.

Still, Auburn Foot Care can look at the sprain through an X-ray, MRI, or just a basic evaluation. Our evaluation will largely depend on the severity of the sprain. Once we have established the exact issue, we’ll recommend several methods of self-treatment, such as:

  • Rest and elevation of the ankle
  • Ice to reduce the swelling
  • A cast or walking boot
  • Ibuprofen or other OTC medicines

If your ankle sprain is more severe, we may recommend other more in-depth treatments like physical therapy or even surgery to repair the damaged ligament. Whatever your need in Auburn, AL, we’ll work with you to get you moving on your ankle again!

  • Fractures: Immediate treatment is needed for any type of fracture. Our experts know how to deal with any type of foot fracture.
  • Plantar fasciitis or other undiagnosed heel pain: Get back on your feet with our time-tested approach to treating common heel ailments.
  • Ingrown toenails: Ingrown toenails hurt. We’ll remove any stubborn toenails so you can walk comfortably again.
  • Warts: A wart in an uncomfortable spot can make wearing shoes difficult. From surgical removal to freezing, we have methods to eliminate stubborn warts.
  • Bunions: Your shoes are likely causing a bunion that needs proper treatment from our team of experts.
  • Metatarsal pain: Pain in the ball of your foot can be caused by overactivity. Learn new ways to treat and prevent metatarsal pain with us.
  • Runner’s foot: Running may be an effective exercise, but long-term issues can be caused if you’re not treating your feet well after a run.
  • Calluses and/or blisters: Everyone gets a callus or blister. The problem is when they become long-term.
  • Issues with balance and/or gait (biomechanical issues): Previous leg or foot injuries can cause you to walk with a limp, creating even more trouble down the road.
  • Morton’s neuroma: Do you ever feel like there’s a constant pebble in your shoe? Morton’s neuroma can be treated to help you walk without pain again.

Getting the Right Diagnosis

Using a comprehensive physical exam, our podiatrist can diagnose your sports injury and confer with you to develop a treatment plan unique to your specific needs. We’ll employ such tactics as:

  • Gathering Patient History: A thorough history helps us discover the precise cause of your pain or problems.
  • Learning Your Symptoms: Symptoms are merely clues to the mystery. We’re not private investigators, but we know how to read the evidence.
  • X-Rays: Sometimes, the only way to diagnose a problem is to see it with our own eyes. Our powerful x-ray machines can reveal any problem.
  • MRIs: When we need a more in-depth set of images, we’ll set you up with a visit to our MRI.

When possible, we postpone surgery in favor of non-surgical treatments ranging from rest to orthotic inserts to physical therapy.

Are Your Shoes the Culprit?

It may sound farfetched, but your shoes might play a role in your performance as an athlete. The right shoes could make all the difference, so even though they may not be the first thing you think of, they could significantly impact your ultimate skill level.

As you consider what type of shoes you want to use, you may wonder about some of the terminology used in athletic shoes. Even your socks can have an impact, but how?

At Auburn Foot Care Center, we know how to make your feet work smarter, not harder. No matter your questions, we can help you determine the best choices for you and the type of activity you enjoy. Let us help you get back in the game!
