  1. Speak to people in your sport that have had similar foot problems. Finding a sports podiatrist whom has played your sport is ideal. They will have a greater understanding of the intricacies and pressure’s your sport puts on your feet and the problems that arise.

    • Great comment Dr. Waters. Although finding a foot and ankle specialist who has played your sport is ideal, it’s not always possible. This is especially true in my practice where I treat all lower extremity sports injuries including, running, cycling, roller derby, figure skating, rock climbing, surfing, football, baseball, golf etc. In these cases, experience and understanding of the biomechanics of your particular sport, are paramount to successful treatment.
