Giants Linebacker in Rehab after Foot Fracture

jonbeasonLast month, Jon Beason of the New York Giants fractured one of his sesamoid bones and damaged one of his ligaments in his foot. Although many sports analysts assumed Beason would need surgery, but his doctor convinced him to opt for a noninvasive treatment that involved immobilizing the injured toe and letting it heal on its own.

Over a month has passed since Beason began rehabilitation, and though specific information about his recovery is not public knowledge, it is likely Beason just recently got his cast off. If the noninvasive plan doesn’t work then surgery will be the next step.

Sometimes physical rehabilitation is necessary. For treatment of an athletic injury, see podiatrist Dr. Harold Anderson of Central Texas Foot and Ankle Centers. Dr. Anderson will provide the quality care you need.

Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes

Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recoveries and return to the sports they love. Podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted to help injured athletes can get back on the field as soon as possible. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through physical therapy or rehabilitation is often necessary 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.
