Unfortunately, athletics can cause a good deal of damage to your feet and ankles in a short period of time. However, with the proper management and preventive techniques such as stretching, weight training and the use of braces and other athletic gear, there’s no reason you can’t be on the field, at the top of your game, for years to come.
If you do sustain an injury, however, you can always rely on Dr. Flinchbaugh and his team of medical professionals to administer precision care in your time of need.
Regardless of whether you have recently sustained an injury or have been dealing with lingering pain from past injuries, Dr. Flinchbaugh will work with you to provide the relief that has alluded you for years.
*Dr. Flinchbaugh was a surgeon for 25 years and can offer second opinion services for possible surgery.*
If you suspect that your foot or ankle injury has been misdiagnosed, we'd be happy to offer a second opinion in terms of diagnosis, treatment and estimated downtime.
It is important to remember that when a podiatrist, or any doctor, recommends resting your body due to certain injuries, the intent is always to allow the bones, joints, ligaments and muscles in question have the proper time to heal.
Pushing an injury is the worse thing you can do and can potentially aggravate the problem, keeping you off your feet even longer.
However, if you feel as though you are healthy enough to get back to your regular regimen against the advice of a previous diagnosis, please give Dr. Flinchbaugh a call for a second opinion.
