Our team have years of experience treating patients who are involved in sports. Whether you are a professional athlete or someone who participates in sports recreationally, we can help you.
The vast majority of sports involve the use of the lower limbs and can leave athletes particularly susceptible to injury. Our Sports Podiatrists work closely with Singapore’s most prominent Sports Physicians. They will assess your lower limb biomechanics and any mal-alignment to establish how these may contribute to your injury. The muscles and joints of the lower limb are assessed, as is your footwear and your walking and running gait.
Many of our patients are required to go barefoot or wear a lightweight shoes when participating in sports. Sports people such as gymnasts, dancers’ fencers and footballers often test their feet to extreme levels. We provide sports people with specific information that will equip them with the skills to reduce stress on the lower limb so that they can carry out their chosen sport.
Our Sports Podiatrists can match your foot type to the sports shoe that is right for the sport that you are participating in. They will be able to advise you on exercises that will help manage your condition. Sports people often benefit from taping as it can provide support and reduce pain levels. Our podiatrists can show you how to tape your foot or ankle. They may also prescribe orthotics that will help improve your biomechanics. These devices range from simple padding and wedging to carefully designed custom orthotics made with 3D technology. Whatever your condition our therapies are tailor made and specifically designed to get you back to performing at your optimum level with maximum comfort.
