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 SunderlandSoccer player Leighton Baines has been sidelined for the last month with a broken toe. But according to The Daily Mail, he may be returning to Everton soon. Since he’s been out Everton has actually been doing very well, winning four matches and tying one.

But that doesn’t mean his team isn’t looking forward to his comeback. “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.”

Rehabilitation is often an important process for athletes recovering from foot and ankle injuries. For more information, visit a podiatrist like Dr. James C. Ricketti of Hamilton. Dr. Ricketti can discuss with you what foot and ankle rehabilitation usually consists of, and help you decide if it’s necessary 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.

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. 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.
