Road to recovery: Leighton Baines, pictured here leaving the pitch injured after breaking his toe against Liverpool, could be back for Everton's Boxing Day clash with SunderlandLeighton Baines, who has been out for the last month with a broken toe, could return to Everton as early as Boxing Day. Baines is a valuable player, although Everton has been doing fine without him, having won four matches since his absence. His spot was filled by Bryan Oviedo.

“Of course we have missed him,” said manager Roberto Martinez. “You can't underestimate the quality of Leighton and his experience, know-how and what that represents.”

Athletes have to take special steps to make sure they rehabilitate their injured feet properly. For advice on the best way to recover from foot and ankle injuries, see a podiatrist like Dr. Bruce G. Greenfield DPM of Greenfield Podiatry. Dr. Greenfield can examine your injured foot or ankle and help determine what kind of rehabilitation would be best for you.

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 so the injured athlete can get back onto the field as soon as possible. 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 injury.

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. Physical therapy often gives hope to athletes. However in cases where the injury is very serious, the athlete may never be able to return to the game; but this does not mean it is the end of the road, as there is always hope to get better.
