Have you heard of Snowboarder's fracture? There are sport-specific injuries that can occur in the feet and ankles. Soccer can give us "turf toe." Running can cause shin splints. Football can result in "footballer's ankle." Common basketball injuries include achilles tendinitis and ankle sprains, which can be a result of chronic ankle instability. Other sports-related injuries include stress fractures, runner's toe, tennis toe and dancer's fracture. We have on-site digital x-ray and are taking same day appointments.
