Anna Balcombe, sports Podiatrist can provide an athlete with the tools needed to quickly return to sport after a lower limb injury.
What is Sports Podiatry?
Sports podiatry is the treatment of foot, ankle, knee and leg injuries by altering lower limb function using a variety of methods, including orthotic insoles, footwear and exercises.
One of the most common injuries to affect an athlete is a sprained ankle. Poor biomechanics can cause many types of injuries to the knee. Although sports podiatrists are foot and ankle specialists, correction of foot and ankle mechanics can have a direct influence on knee problems, shin splints, ITB strain, calf or hamstring injury. At The Balcombe Foot and Ankle Clinic we are able to treat these injuries to get you back to your chosen sport as quickly as possible.
