Treatment for Sports Injuries to Feet, Ankles, Knees and Legs
At Nigel Tewkesbury, I specialise in sports podiatry, which is the treatment of foot, ankle, knee and leg injuries caused by sport. Foot and ankle injuries are common in sport and range from sprained ankles to quite serious injuries to the lower limb. These sports activities include, rugby, tennis, football, golf, athletics, basketball and even simple walking. As people exercise more, we are beginning to see injuries such as: Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Shin Splints and Runners Knee.
Analysis of Injury
I am a qualified podiatrist and will analyse the way your foot and connected parts of the leg interact with the ground as you walk and run. This allows me to determine whether or not your injury has biomechanical origins.
Sports Injury Treatment
I can alter your lower limb function to prevent your injury re-occurring and ease your pain using a number of methods such as orthotic insoles, footwear and exercises.
Bad posture and gait can cause:
- Upper leg pain
- Knee pain
- Lower leg pain
- Ankle pain
- Heel pain
- Foot pain
- High arches
- Flat feet
- Unstable gait
Treatment from a specialist podiatrist can enhance your sporting performance, reducing injuries and improving balance.If you have regular pain in the your foot after sport, please call me. (We also provide general foot care treatment.)
