Podiatrist Dr. Stephan Silva treats sports-related injuries and offers preventative measures to keep your feet healthy. His expertise is invaluable to sports medicine in Boca Raton, FL, as it can significantly speed up recovery times.

Foot Sprains

Foot sprains occur when one or more ligaments in your foot have been injured and are common during sports activities.

Fortunately, Dr. Silva has the training to assess the severity of a foot sprain before creating an appropriate treatment plan to get you back into the game as soon as possible.

Foot Fractures

Foot fractures can result from many different sources, from direct trauma to repetitive stress and overuse, which is common when playing sports.

Thus, Dr. Silva will assess your foot for pain, swelling, and bruising when treating your foot fracture. Next, multiple-angle X-rays may be scheduled to locate and evaluate the severity of any fractures or breaks.

Treating foot fractures includes immobilization and physical therapy to help the bones heal correctly. 

Heel Spurs

Heel spurs happen due to long-term inflammation. This can happen if the Achilles tendon, which stretches over the back of the heel, is chronically injured. 

The good news is that heel spurs can usually be managed through rest and lifestyle adjustments, such as changing footwear and wearing supportive shoes or shoe inserts. However, if the pain persists, Dr. Silva may recommend corticosteroid injections.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis, or inflammation of the band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, is often seen in athletes who are engaging in repetitive running, jumping, and standing activities for extended periods. Depending on your age and the severity of your condition, Dr. Silva may suggest rest, physical therapy, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen, or corticosteroid injections. If these common Boca Raton, FL, sports medicine remedies do not help, Dr. Silva may recommend surgery. 

Achilles Tendonitis

The Achilles tendon transmits the force from your calf muscles down to your heel bone when walking, running, and jumping, helping control your ankle position after moving your foot. 

Achilles tendonitis is inflammation and pain in the back of the heel or above the ankle and usually improves with rest, OTC pain medications (ibuprofen), stretching exercises, and icing.

Custom Orthotics

People involved in high-impact or high-intensity sports often utilize custom orthotics to enhance performance and reduce injury risks.

Orthotics are tailored specifically for your foot and are worn inside footwear for extra support, cushioning, or stability every step of the way.
