Treating Overuse Injuries
Regardless of what kind of pain or discomfort you may be feeling, anything that remains persistent or does not improve after one or two days should receive professional attention. Trying to ignore or “push through” any troubles you are having will only increase your risk of the problem becoming more severe or long-lasting.
Getting proper care for overuse injuries is important for a few reasons. At Capital Podiatry Associates:
- We often have same-day and next-day appointments available. The sooner a diagnosis is made and treatment begins, the sooner you can start to feel better.
- We can get to the root(s) of your injury. It’s crucial not only to treat the symptoms at hand but to also identify and address their sources. If all the factors aren’t resolved, you might just find yourself with a similar injury in the near future.
- We will recommend a treatment plan that best meets your needs. We know many patients hesitate to seek help for fear of being laid up in recovery forever. We want you to keep moving in beneficial ways, and will work with you to help you stay active without risking your recovery.
Once we have a full understanding of your condition, we will recommend a treatment plan designed not only to help you recover as quickly and safely as possible but to reduce your chances of suffering similar injuries in the future.
Our range of treatments runs from traditional methods such as rest, icing, and medication, to more advanced techniques like MLS laser therapy and massage gun therapy. Different cases respond best to different treatment plans, and we will always be happy to discuss all of your options with you.
Do not hesitate to seek treatment for an overuse injury. Call the team at Capital Podiatry Associates for swift and comprehensive care that will get you back to action without pain holding you back.
