sports injuriesThe Texas Rangers have placed pitcher Joe Saunders on a medical rehabilitation assignment in light of his recent foot injury, and may offer him a position as a reliever once he gets off the disabled list. Saunders has spent his entire career as a starter, but he may have to make the transition if he wants to keep playing for the Rangers.

"The spot right now we have is in the bullpen," said Jon Daniels, the Rangers’ GM. "He sees himself as a starter but that's the spot we have open."

Rehabilitation can often effectively supplement the healing process for sports players who have foot or ankle injuries. If you are an athlete recovering from damage to the ankles or feet, visit a podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of Paramus and Paterson. Dr. Slomowitz can evaluate your condition and determine if rehabilitation would be right for you.

Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes

Recovery is vitally important to injured athletes, for if they cannot recover, they cannot play the sports they love. Podiatrists and physical therapists are essential in the consultation process as well as in developing the best plan of action to return the athlete to the field. However, having a reliable, professional, and dedicated process of rehabilitation is just as serious as the injury itself; a component that cannot be overlooked in the healing process.

Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?

Athletes in particular come by with this question all the time---or may not know enough to ask the right questions. A sports therapist is very much athletically-focused, the goal being to return the athlete to the game as quickly as possible. Proper healing is emphasized because if an athlete returns to their game before the injury is healed, they could aggravate or worsen their condition.

Physical Therapy is the Key

Every athlete understands the inherent risk in stepping on to the field of their chosen game. When an injury is incurred, physical therapy attempts to return athlete’s to their original level of health—even if it might not be possible. The key is hope. This is the true importance of seeking out rehabilitation as quickly as is humanly possible.

fracturesDuring a regular floor routine, junior and gymnast Ally Riedel suffered a Lisfranc fracture in which her metatarsal bones were displaced from the tarsus. The tumbling pass, finishing with a double backflip in pike position was a normal move that she’d completed hundreds of times; however, this particular time the unexpected mishap came mid-flip. She found that her body counter-rotated with her momentum and twisted, not landing normally in a two-footed position.

Her coach from Cary Gymnastics helped her off the mat at the Fremd Gymnastics Sectional and a trainer examined and iced her foot. Yet, Riedel still made it to states. She had this to say, “I was so thrilled. Coming back from this injury, I wasn’t really expecting to make it to state.”

Getting back into a sport after a recent injury can be daunting—unless you have someone guiding you on the safest, healthiest path. It is recommended you speak with a podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of Paramus and Paterson. Dr. Slomowitz can offer expert advice and help you recover from your sports injury.

Getting Back into Sports after Foot and Ankle Injuries

Sprained ankles are a frustrating and painful ordeal many athletes go through. Recovery from a sprained ankle usually involves the RICE method. This includes:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

In addition, athletes should consider wearing an ankle brace in order to keep the ankle stabilized and alleviate any pain as it heals.

Stress fractures that occur in the foot and ankle come in two types. This includes stable and displaced. Stable stress fractures do not consist of any shifting in bone alignment while displaced stress fractures involve bone ends that do not line up.

Korenthal prior to last weekend's collision.Cyclist Kevin Korenthal has a passion for helping fellow cyclists in their race. Korenthal pushed through foot rehabilitation after a tragic accident rendered his left leg in need of amputation.  

Korenthal remains not only optimistic, but uses his experience to reach out to others. "If my participation in this extraordinary event can raise just a few extra thousand dollars for those heroes, then all of the hard work and pain that will go into preparing for this event will have been worth it,” he said. Money from the Million Dollar Challenge Race will be donated to the Challenged Athletes Foundation, to help disabled athletes get back on their feet.

A podiatrist like Dr. Henry Slomowitz of New Jersey understands the complications a foot injury can have on one’s health.  Dr. Slomowitz will guide patients in the right direction and provide you with the appropriate treatment options.

Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes

Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recovery and get back to the sport they love. Rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through the motions of physical therapy or rehabilitation is a necessary process to keeping that injury at bay.

Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?

If an athlete gets a foot injury, it is essential to receive foot rehabilitation to ensure proper healing. Sports therapists are more focused on athletic-related injuries than general physical therapists. It is important for an athlete to become healed properly because if they attempt to get back into their game before they are physically well, they could re-aggravate the original injury or even suffer a new one due to their weakened state.

Physical Therapy Gives Hope

Physical therapy helps to keep athletes as active as they are physically capable, which will get them ready to return to the field once their feet become healed. Physical therapy often gives hope to athletes. It is best to seek out rehabilitation as soon as possible so there are better chances for a full recovery, no matter how severe or minor the injury is.

Cyclist Kevin Korenthal lost both of his legs in a tragic car vs. cyclist collision last December. The crash that Korenthal was in this past winter left him unable to walk let alone ride a bike. According to Korenthal, he will have to monitor his situation and work closely with doctors during the rehab process.

With an amputated left leg and new prosthetic, Korenthal is looking forward to the race and helping others reach the finish line. "If my participation in this extraordinary event can raise just a few extra thousand dollars for those heroes, then all of the hard work and pain that will go into preparing for this event will have been worth it,” he said. Money from the Million Dollar Challenge Race will be donated to the Challenged Athletes Foundation, to help disabled athletes get back on their feet.
