Top Rated Bethesda M D Podiatrist Discusses The 2016 Summer OlympicsThe 2016 Summer Olympics is quickly approaching. Athletes of all skill levels are competing against each other to represent their countries and win the coveted gold medals. There will be 28 different Olympic sports and 306 events being played in Rio de Janeiro from August 5th to August 21st. World-class athletes will be competing in sports such as rugby, tennis, football, rhythmic gymnastics, hurdles, and triathlons -- to name a few. They will be pushing their bodies to the limit, including their feet.

Olympic Games and Sport Injuries

Olympic athletes are prone to many foot-related injuries due to their intense training. One foot condition that is commonly seen at our podiatry office in Bethesda, MD is plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a heel pain caused when the ligaments running from the heels to the toes become inflamed, weak or swollen. This condition can occur when athletes put too much strain on their feet.

Plantar Fasciitis Discomfort

Even if you are not an Olympic athlete, heel pain is still possible. It can occur when you are out playing sports, walking, or when up on your feet for long periods of time. Yet your discomfort is treatable. Bethesda podiatrist, Dr. Ross may recommend custom orthotics, medications, physical therapy, stretching and rest. Also, determining the exact cause of the plantar fasciitis can allow you avoid the activities that place undue stress on the ligaments along your feet.

Olympic athletes seek out the right treatments to properly take care of their feet. You can do the same when experiencing pain in your feet or ankles. Seek out professional advice from a podiatrist in Bethesda, MD by calling us today for an appointment.
