We utilize unique treatments specific to the sport, patient and training level of each athlete. For those patients that are not quite at the athletic level, we still have many treatments available for exercise related injuries. Our podiatry team combines innovative treatments to get you back in the game and will take preventative measures to keep them from occurring.
Achilles tendinitis is an acute inflammation of the Achilles tendon. The Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon in our body, so injuries can be very debilitating. This type of injury is usually precipitated by overuse, and can be slow to heal as the tendon does not receive much blood flow. Achilles tendinitis can be treated by our podiatrist from small adjustments to complete remodeling and wound care to the area.
Though podiatry focuses on injuries below the knee, we must address the lower-back as our nerves stem from this area and ultimately control our lower extremities. Providing balancing and stability treatments at the lower leg allows for proper alignment of the spine; this can prevent injury as well as treat pain by reducing the stress on our lower lumbar region.
These injuries commonly occur due to repetitive movements or pressure in the same area over time. Similar to a rope if pressure is consistently placed in the same area, we can create breaks in skin, tendons and bone. These injuries can also lead to wound injuries that can be treated by our team with the latest innovative treatments, such as stem cells and amniotic or chorionic grafts.
Patellofemoral pain is also known as runner’s knee, and commonly seen here at Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists. Symptoms begin as burning pain, most commonly under the kneecap. This painful condition is predominantly caused by overuse, but can be caused or exacerbated by unnatural mechanics. Those who are prone to runner’s knee should have their gait analyzed by our staff to not only evaluate the gait changes, but correct from conservative to surgical means.
Also known as medial tibial stress syndrome, can be due to everything from too much stress on the tibia bone to tendon inflammation. The majority of these injuries are due to stress increase on the bone, which can be decreased by podiatrist changing your shoe gear to match your natural stride. Shin splints can also be reduced by conservative therapies prescribed by our team.
STEM CELL THERAPY | REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Stem Cell Therapy is one of the several amazing medical technologies that uses the healing power of the body to repair certain foot and ankle conditions. These regenerative treatments are among the most significant advances in the podiatric field.
