Well, it is that time of the year again. The big game is finally this Sunday. With all the talk of deflated footballs we have not talked much about pain and injury. This time of year all football players are in some type of pain. If you watched Aaron Rodgers deal with his calf pain and Richard Sherman play with his injured elbow, you know what I mean. Of course, here at Sarasota Foot Care Center we are a little more interested in the injuries that happen below the waist. From turf toe, to metatarsalgia, to fractures, strains and sprains...the foot is a source of all kinds of limiting pain. If you have foot pain that is keeping you on the sidelines, so to speak, don't wait. This blog, as well as, our website are a great source of basic information. Once armed with this information, if you still have pain make an appointment and we will get you back in the game!
