What can a podiatrist do?
A podiatrist will assess and manage the podiatric needs of the sportsperson and the sport. We may carry out a physical biomechanical assessment, which looks at the way the bones, muscles, and associated structures such as tendons are aligned and interact. We may also look at factors such as stability, body posture and other musculoskeletal factors. He will take into account the type of sport and provide advice on what the patient can do for themselves, such as stretching and strengthening exercises.
What can other health professionals do?
Sports podiatrists often work in a team with dieticians, physiotherapists, sports science specialists and sports masseurs, where each team member has his own area of expertise. A podiatrist may refer you to one of these specialists when it may prove to be beneficial for you.
