Preston Podiatry Is the Podiatrist in Perth That Can Help West Perth, Joondalup and Ocean Reef Athletes and Sports Enthusiasts Recover From Injury

The feet and legs are vital to athletes and the success of their career. When athletes have problems with their feet, shins, knees or even their lower backs, it becomes tough for them to keep going without pain. Many of these ailments can be managed at Preston Podiatry, which has been assisting athletes in Currumbine and West Perth for 22 years. We have extensive experience and are highly trained in biomechanics and can help athletes prevent and overcome injuries. As a podiatrist in Perth, we are passionate about sports and about helping athletes to succeed on and off the field.

Common Injuries among Athletes

Athletes, even ‘weekend warriors’ who run, jump and lift a lot will experience nagging injuries from time to time. Those who play football or run frequently may experience shin splints, a very common sports injury. Shin splints can arise from a lack of proper stretching or even from an athlete having flat feet. Standing for long periods of time and of course, strenuous exercise can cause pain in the front of the lower leg.

Many athletes do not realise that a podiatrist can provide them with the treatment and preventative care they need. Our experienced podiatrists will recommend treatments based on the cause of an athlete’s shin splints and how severe they are.

Other common injuries include plantar fasciitis, knee pain, Achilles tendonitis and heel pain. Because of the training and experience of our podiatrists, we can help athletes prevent and overcome injury, assist with proper shoe selection and even advise on modifying an existing exercise program. We can also recommend a variety of stretching and strengthening exercises so that athletes can continue to enjoy sports.
