Dr. Ward Attends 2017 Sports Symposium: Foot and Ankle

Ward Chiropractic and Rehabilitation specializes in the care of sports injuries. To that end, Dr. Ward attended a special sports symposium at the National University of Health Science in Lombard, Illinois that discussed various elements of the care of sports-related foot and ankle injuries.

Injuries to the foot and ankle are particularly common while running. Other sports that commonly see injuries in this region of the body include basketball, football, soccer, and volleyball. Of course, one does not have to be playing sports to injure his or her foot or ankle. Wearing shoes that are too stiff or stepping wrong in high heels can also result in such injuries. 

Dr. Ward’s Dedication to Providing the Best Care

Attending this symposium is just one more way that Dr. Ward is striving to provide the best possible care for his patients. The symposium covered the following topics related to foot and ankle injuries:

  • Adjusting of the Foot and Ankle – As a chiropractor, Dr. Ward strives to keep up-to-date with the latest adjustment methods to ensure that patients receive the best possible care and results. 
  • Taping of the Foot and Ankle – Proper taping methods ensure that the foot or ankle have time to heal from the injury and that the damaged muscles, ligaments, or other types of soft tissue are not injured further through use.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Nutrition – Inflammation occurs surrounding just about any injury to the body. Proper nutrition plays a key role in combating inflammation and helping the healing process along.
  • Rehabilitation of the Foot and Ankle – Dr. Ward is more than just a chiropractor. He also helps to rehabilitate patients following an injury. Rehabilitation helps to strengthen the foot and ankle, thereby reduce the risk of injuring the same area again. Plus, rehabilitation can help get you back up on your feet, and back to your sport of choice, faster.
