Injury

With clinics at Kotara, Rathmines, Salamander Bay and Bathurst, the experienced podiatrists at James Pascoe Podiatry diagnose and treat sports injuries such as Achilles tendonitis, sprains and stress fractures.

Most sports involve walking, running, jumping and turning in a way that puts greater physical stress on your body than normal everyday activity. The majority of sports injuries are to the feet and lower legs.

At James Pascoe Podiatry, we are trained in the examination and diagnosis of conditions affecting the foot and lower leg. We have extensive knowledge of the biomechanics of athletic movement. This means we can spot irregularities and inconsistencies in your gait that may make you susceptible to injury or impede your performance.

We analyse the way your foot hits the ground and examine the chain of events as that force moves through the ankle and knee joints, up to your leg. By analysing the way you walk or run, we can assess if there are any mechanical contributors to your injury. We can then recommend appropriate training regimens, footwear and orthotics (if necessary) to assist in recovery and prevent recurrence of your injury.

In this way James Pascoe Podiatry can help you overcome sports injuries such as:

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Arch pain (plantar fasciitis)
  • Calf strain
  • Knee pain (runner's knee)
  • Stress fractures
  • Tibial stress syndrome (shin splints)

Children and Sport

As children in Australia have very active lifestyles, they are prone to sports-related injuries. These can be caused by muscle overuse, or poor alignment of the lower leg and foot. One of the most common problems experienced by children is Sever’s Disease

Children can also suffer from heel and knee pain in the same way as adults. These ailments can be treated with gentle exercising, custom-made orthotics and footwear modification.
