Zach Parise of the St. Louis Wild hockey team took a particularly nasty blow on the ice and suffered a foot injury as a result. Parise suffered his injury while attempting to block a shot. “You try not to get too worried about it until you find out what’s really wrong,” Parise said regarding his injury. As a result, Parise will be off the ice indefinitely.
Wild coach Mike Yeo remains optimistic about his team, despite being hampered without the star player. “When a guy like Zach gets hurt, it’s always concerning because he’s a top-notch player and brings an awful lot more than just scoring goals. But I do think we’re a deep enough team and have enough character that we should be able to battle through it.” The severity of Parise’s injury is still unknown.
After suffering an injury, athletes need rehabilitation in order to get back into their sport. If you are an athlete that wants to recover optimally, please seek the care of one of our twelve podiatrists at Ankle & Foot Center of Tampa Bay. Our podiatrists can assess the progress you’ve made and help keep you on the right track.
Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes
Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recovery and get back to the sport they love. To do this, podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through the motions of physical therapy or rehabilitation is a necessary process 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.
