A podiatrist is the new name for chiropodist, and they have been trained to diagnose and treat abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. In sports podiatry this expertise in foot ankle and lower limb injuries is applied to athletes and sports performers. It is therefore no surprise that sport injury podiatrists are commonly sought after by athletes. 

In most sports healthy feet both matter to performance and also take a lot of punishment as a result of sport participation. From the crunching tackle on a football field, the explosive power of a jump on a basketball court through the through to the repetitive pounding of a long-distance runner feet, and legs, are crucial to success and are also at risk of injury because they absorb a lot of suffering. Podiatrists can help with the musculoskeletal damage that come from taking part in sport.

What makes the foot so fascinating is that it is a very complex mechanical structure with 26 bones, 33 joints and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Twenty of the joints are articulated which means that they flexible. And with that many joints and soft tissues you can see how the foot can achieve do so much but also that there is plenty of scope for things to go wrong.

In sport settings, podiatrists help athletes by diagnosing and treating a wide range of problems affecting the feet, ankles and lower limbs. The following are examples of the types of conditions a podiatrist will commonly treat in athletes: ingrowing toenails, heel pain, big toe pain, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis (arch pain). Because they also work with all lower limbs they also treat Achilles tendonitis, back pain, shin splints and knee pain.

A sport injury podiatrist will typically undertake a biomechanical assessment (e.g., gait analysis) of the athlete’s movement (e.g., how an athlete walks and runs) to diagnose any biomechanics problems. Following this assessment and discussion with the athlete, the sports podiatrist will propose a suitable treatment. 

The type of treatment proposed by a sports podiatrist can include taping and strapping, ice, exercise programmes, joint mobilisations, advice on appropriate footwear, insoles or orthotics. Depending on the experience and expertise of the podiatrist in sport they will be able to consider the unique demands of the sport and can also provide advice on changing running gait. This can be particularly helpful in preventing future injury and supporting long-term pain free exercise and sport participation.
