Regardless of your abilities, your feet take the brunt of the stress during physical activity. If you are an occasional sports enthusiast, weekend warrior, or a professional athlete, Dr. D’Amato helps you remain healthy and competitive in your recreational activities. Our special sports medicine care can help you prevent injuries before they occur as well as repair injuries after they happen. Brick sports medicine provides 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. These can be treated with permanent removal. We can also treat these conditions on a temporary basis, giving our patients temporary relief. The patient has the final say on how we treat their condition.
The Brick sports medicine practice also treats ankle sprains and strains, torn Achilles tendons, and foot fractures which result from strenuous activity. Dr. D’Amato has your best interests and foot care at heart. He works with you to develop a treatment plan that recognizes your active lifestyle and he is committed to getting you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
