Sports Podiatry & Injuries

sports

 

Blen-Pod-Photos-(22)_SportsIn many sports, the foot absorbs tremendous shearing and loading forces, sometimes reaching over 20 times the person’s body weight! This leads to lower leg injuries both acute and chronic.

Our podiatrists have a special interest in sports podiatry and are experienced in dealing with all foot related sporting injuries. We understand that different sports require different needs; and deal with many different sports such as Football, Rugby, Netball, Golf, Running, Tennis and more.

All our podiatrists are ACC registered and in New Zealand many sports injuries are covered by ACC.

Common lower leg sports injuries include:
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Ankle sprain
  • Shin splints
