Sport Injury Services
Conveniently located to serve Artesia, Rancho Cucamonga, and surrounding areas
If you’ve suffered trauma while playing sports, it is important to seek out our sport injury services in Artesia and surrounding areas. At Foot & Ankle Specialists, skilled expert Dr. Shawn S. Rabbani has the experience needed to effectively treat foot and ankle injuries resulting from sports activities.
Before proper treatment can be chosen, you will need to arrange a consultation for diagnosis of your specific sports injury. During a consultation, you will tell Dr. Rabbani the details of the incident that caused the injury. You will also go over the symptoms that you have experienced as a result of your injury.
Dr. Rabbani will ask you questions regarding your complete medical history. This will include questions regarding current medications and supplements, allergies, past medical procedures, and all pre-existing medical conditions.
Next, Dr. Rabbani will perform a careful physical examination of the injured area. X-rays or other diagnostic tests may be performed to determine the exact nature of the injury. Once a diagnosis has been made, Dr. Rabbani will create a course of treatment and discuss its details with you.
Even though ankle sprains are common, they are not always minor injuries. Some people with repeated or severe sprains can develop long-term joint pain and weakness. Treating a sprained ankle can help prevent ongoing ankle problems.
Custom molded orthotics are a central part of the care of foot and ankle problems. Many foot and ankle problems including ankle instability, tendonitis, plantar fascitis, bunion deformity and arthritis are caused by poor foot position or alignment and can be dramatically improved with use of custom orthotics.
Our doctors can treat the condition, recommend proper shoe gear, and evaluate whether orthotics are needed. If not treated, shin splints may eventually result in a stress fracture of the shin bone.
Sprained ankles often result from a fall, a sudden twist, or a blow that forces the ankle joint out of its normal position. Ankle sprains commonly occur while participating in sports, wearing inappropriate shoes, or walking or running on an uneven surface.
Turf toe is a sprain of the big toe joint resulting from injury during sports activities. The injury usually results from excessive upward bending of the big toe joint. The condition can be caused from either jamming the toe, or repetitive injury when pushing off repeatedly when running or jumping.
The two peroneal tendons are located on the outer side of the ankle and function to stabilize and move the ankle. If there is an acute tear noted, then to address this tendon injury, the tendon can be repaired and fixed. If this is a chronic problem then the tendon needs to be repaired by removing the scar tissue and suturing the tears of the tendon.
