Dear patients and visitors,
Please know that our office is following all recommended guidance
from public health authorities, including best practices for hygiene,
infection control and medical professional team health. Our highest
priority is to keep all our patients and staff as safe as possible. Due to
Governor Tony Evers’ SAFER AT HOME orders, we will have limited
hours and staffing until the orders end on May 26 th or later if these
orders should be extended. We will only be seeing a limited number of
patients and only those where the appointment is necessary for their
immediate health and safety. We ask that anyone who enters our office
practices social distancing of 6 feet and covers their mouth and nose
when you cough or sneeze. Please STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK.
If you call our office and no one answers, please leave us a message.
Someone will be checking messages several times a day and will get
back to you. Thank you for your patience and understanding during
these trying times. We all need to work together to keep everyone in
our community safe and to minimize the risk to one another.
Bay Area Foot Clinic
Your feet and ankles take a beating when you’re playing baseball. Baseball players should be aware of the following risks.
Ankle sprains may occur while running, fielding balls, stepping on or sliding into bases. Sprains should be evaluated by a foot and ankle surgeon to determine the extent of injury, including possible peroneal tendon injuries or fractures. The foot and ankle surgeon will develop a treatment plan: failure to fully treat and rehabilitate a sprain may lead to chronic ankle instability and recurrent sprains.
Overuse or excessive training may sideline some athletes with Achilles tendinopathy or heel pain (often plantar fasiciitis, or calcaneal apophysitis in children and adolescents).
Contusions may occur from impact with the ball or contact with other players.
Cleats may pose challenges in the forefoot and aggravation of neuromas, sesamoids, bunions, and hammertoes. To stay at the top of your game, ensure that cleats are fitted properly and have injuries evaluated by a foot and ankle surgeon.
