Sports injuries need attention

Sporting activities and exercise place a greater demand on your body than normal day-to-day activities. Unsurprisingly, injuries to the foot and lower limb make up a large proportion of sporting injuries.

Injuries don’t always signal themselves with pain. If they go unnoticed they can create an imbalance in your feet and legs, and the repeated strain can lead to more significant problems.

At The Foot Group, we have a number of treatments and rehabilitation methods to help fix your injuries such as:

  • Orthotics
  • Exercises
  • Rehabilitation
  • Surgery if necessary

We understand the structure and movement of the foot so we can provide suitable advice on sports shoes to suit your specific needs and sport.

We also offer a wide range of supportive sports tapes. When correctly applied, sports tape provides support to muscle and ligament injuries, allowing sports addicts to return to their games with even more confidence.

If you have a sporting injury or need advice on appropriate footwear, don’t hesitate to give us a call or book your appointment today.
