Our treatment protocols are inspired by methods used in professional sports, helping you recover from injury and improve your daily performance.

Common Conditions Treated

Shin Splints

Shin splints, a frequent issue among athletes, cause pain along the shinbone due to inflammation from overactivity. This condition often arises from sudden changes in physical activity, such as increased exercise frequency, intensity, or running on different terrains. Flat feet, rigid arches, and improper footwear are also contributing factors.

High Ankle Sprain

High ankle sprains affect the ligament connecting the lower leg bones above the ankle. These injuries can be more severe than standard ankle sprains, requiring a longer recovery period and specialized treatment, including strength training for full functional recovery.

Ankle Sprain

Ankle sprains, resulting from ligament damage due to twisting injuries, can lead to joint instability and recurring issues if not adequately treated. Dr. Cancel and Performance Sport-Care provide comprehensive care to ensure complete recovery from all types of ankle sprains.

Achilles Tendinitis

This condition involves inflammation of the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to the heel. Factors like sudden activity increases, running on hard surfaces, or improper footwear can contribute to Achilles tendinitis. Our office offers effective treatment protocols that address the significant factors involved in this condition.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis, caused by inflammation or tearing of the connective tissue on the foot’s bottom, can result from increased physical load, worn-out shoes, or foot structure issues. We provide treatments that address the root cause of plantar fasciitis, offering relief and recovery.
