Sports podiatry is a podiatric specialty that focuses on the study and analysis of the gestures and movements that each user makes while practicing a specific sport.
This study is occasionally carried out preventively, to prevent injuries or pathological compensation by the athlete through the following process:
-Postural study under load.
-Biomechanical study of the tread + analysis of the running technique.
On the other hand, the most frequent thing is that an athlete comes to see us when he has already suffered an injury or presents some type of pain, overload, or functional disability. This tendency to go to the medical professional after having had the injury is increasingly being replaced by prevention to avoid having them.
