Sports Podiatry Singapore
Sports Podiatry Singapore
Regardless if you're a recreational active and sports person or a high performance elite athlete, you should always be focused on injury prevention and performance maximization.
Sports podiatry focuses largely on two main areas:
- The management, treatment and prevention of foot, ankle and and lower limb over use injuries
- Mechanical performance enhancement which focuses on both minimizing risks of injury and maximizing mechanical performance
Sports Podiatry Singapore: Some Misconceptions
Some of the common misconceptions when it comes to being active and performing in sports is that one "just put on shoes, and do it" - this couldn't be further from the truth.
Realistically. different people have different biomechanics and physiology, depending on their genetics, their recent/previous activity level, history of previous or recurring injuries, and existing co-morbidities.
An example is to compare a 30 years old person who has been exercising regularly for 10 years, injury free, at good weight and function; as compared to a 30 years old desk-bound individual with history of recurrent back and ankle pains, and never exercised before - who is at risk of developing more injuries should following a decision to go for a sports activity?
Of course, the 30 year old sedentary person with recurrent injuries.
And everyone's feet and ankle is different from another, so if one person can do "okay" with a certain pair of shoes, or running style; that doesn't translate to everyone else.
And having recurrent injuries isn't "part and parcel" of being active - yes, accidents do happen, but recurrent injuries isn't accidental anymore. It's likely due to an underlying issue that is yet resolved.
Sports Podiatry Singapore: What Is Done
What the sports podiatrist will do to help you is to assess and diagnose via specific assessments and gait analysis to determine if your legs alignments and foot and ankle stability is good enough to achieve your highest possible sports and activity performance.
After assessing and determining the core problem, we will create a customized sports podiatry treatment plan for you, often working in conjunction with our sports physiotherapists and massage therapists to provide a holistic approach to sports performance.
At the same time, you may be prescribed customized orthotics insoles by the podiatrist that will serve to prevent injuries, address underlying mechanical deficits as well as maximize your sports and activity performance.
