Our special sports medicine care can help you prevent injuries before they occur as well as repair injuries after they happen. Services for sports medicine in Manhattan Beach provide treatment for sprained ankles, fractures, stress fractures, shin splints and other overuse conditions, heel pain and heel injuries, tendonitis and pulled tendons. Avoiding a sports injury is of paramount importance. These services are preventive as well as curative. Orthotics are custom made to fit in a patient’s shoes to treat painful conditions such as flat feet, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis and neuromas. Ingrown toenails can be treated with either a simple excision or a more complex surgical procedure depending on the severity of the condition. Fungal infections are familiar to many athletes. These infections of both the skin and nails should be treated as soon as possible because if left untreated they can lead to dangerous blood infections such as cellulitis. Bunions, hammertoes, corns and calluses are very common conditions for the athlete. These can be treated with permanent removal. Our patients have the final say on how we treat their conditions.
