March Madness is here!  One of the most exciting times of year in sports.  Basketball is an exciting, high energy, fast paced sport.  Constant lead changes and fiercely competitive college athletes make the NCAA tournament amazing.  

Basketball is very often synonymous with lower extremity and foot injuries.  The nature of the sport puts a lot of stress on the feet and ankles.  Sprains and fractures are unfortunately a common injury for these types of athletes.  A sprain, or tearing of a ligament is often treated with a. period of immobilization, but can require surgery.  The same goes for fractures of the feet.  
 
We here at advanced podiatry are experts in all types of lower extremity injuries.  So. if you find yourself sidelined we can get you back on the court. Go Orange!
