Getting Back in the Game after a Foot or Ankle Injury

Are you an all-star pro trying to get back before your team starts the playoffs? A high school senior who doesn’t want to miss your last season? A middle-aged Average Joe or Plain Jane who just likes to run or play a little basketball or tennis on the weekends?

Man standing on basketballThe truth is, it doesn’t matter whether you play for millions of dollars, or play just for fun. If you live an active lifestyle, nothing is worse than being forced to the sidelines by a foot or ankle injury. No matter your circumstances, you just want to get back in the game as quickly as possible.

We can help with that.

At the Absolute Foot Care Specialists, our team of experts—led by podiatric physician Dr. Noah Levine—are singularly committed to helping athletes, workers, and all active individuals get back on their feet as quickly and confidently as possible.

To that end, we’ve invested heavily in advanced technology, cutting edge research, and training in a wide variety of treatment protocols. Our mission is to stay ahead of the game in the world of medicine, so you can get back in the game in the world of sports and leisure.

Extracorporeal pulse activation treatment (EPAT), sometimes called “shockwave therapy,” is a prominent example of this commitment. Although especially well known for treating heel pain, EPAT is effective for a wide variety of painful sports injuries.

This is a cutting-edge device that delivers therapeutic pulses of energy deep into your damaged tissues at the site of an injury. Your body’s cells respond to that energy by forming new blood vessels and triggering a faster healing and regeneration response. In short: it can help you heal from injury much faster than traditional remedies alone, and therefore get back to the track, field, or court in the shortest possible timeframe.

Whether we ultimately recommend EPAT or a combination of other treatments or therapies, including physical therapy or orthotics, will of course depend on your diagnosis and needs. However, you can be sure that we always put our patients first, and do everything in our power to get you back up to speed quickly, completely, and successfully.
