Sports Injuries Care in Waxahachie, Corsicana & Ennis, TX

sports injuries in waxahachie txGet Back In the Game With Our Award-Winning Podiatrists

Sports injuries are one of the most common reasons that patients see the foot specialist at Family Foot & Ankle Centers. Since the feet and ankles are the foundation for almost all sports, this is not surprising.

No matter how hard you try, injuries will occur. But many are preventable if you take certain precautions. If you find yourself with a sports injury, we have 3 convenient locations in Waxahachie, Corsicana & Ennis, TX, to get you back in the game quickly!

What Are Some Common Sports Injuries?

  • Ankle or foot Sprains– Injuries to ligaments and tendon can cause fibers to become torn. 
  • Ankle or foot Fractures– A break in one of the supporting the bones in the foot or ankle. These require a visit to our foot specialists.
  • Plantar fasciitis or other types of heel pain–This is a form of overuse injury where the ligament that supports the bottom of the foot becomes strained and inflamed.
  • Ingrown toenails–Toenails become damaged from improper fitting shoes putting pressure on the sides of the nails.
  • Ball of your foot pain–This can be due to too much pressure on the bones under the ball of the foot, which is called metatarsalgia. It can also be from a fracture or a pinched nerve called a neuroma.
  • Calluses and/or blisters–This is one of the most common sports injuries seen. Pressure points on your foot should be padded before activities.
  • Achilles tendonitis–This is a common injury that many times can be avoided with proper stretching.

How to Prevent Sports Injuries

From simple to complicated sports injuries, we treat athletes of all ages and levels. To prevent injury, here are a few suggestions:

  • Warm up slowly before exercising and take the time to cool down afterwards.
  • Stretch before, during, and after the activity to reduce the risk of injury.
  • Wear appropriate shoes. Whether it is a running shoe, a cleat, or a sneaker, it needs to have adequate support and stability.
  • Don’t overdo it. This is a major cause of overuse injuries as tendons and ligaments do not get a chance to recover between workouts.

Diagnosing Your Injury

We will begin by obtaining a detailed history of your problem and then perform a comprehensive foot and ankle exam. Advanced diagnostic imaging tests such as on-site digital x-rays and MRI, may be used to help diagnose your sports injury. Together, your foot specialists and you will develop a treatment plan unique to your specific needs.

If you are looking for a Podiatrist look no further. This clinic has taken care of my son. It was so nice to go in and have the entire staff make us feel welcomed and answer all of our questions. We got in quickly and the x-rays are done in the clinic.
