Sports Medicine Specialist in Orange County

Sports Medicine Specialist in Orange CountyAs a sports medicine specialist in Orange County, Dr. Matt Ahmadi of Orange County Foot & Ankle sees a lot of orthopedic injuries related to sports participation or overuse. Foot and ankle injuries for these types of patients are very common and can range from a minor ankle sprain to a broken foot and nearly everything in between. These injuries can require treatments such as therapy, braces, custom foot orthotics, and more.

Dr. Matt Ahmadi’s goal is to treat athletes for their injuries so that they can heal quickly and return to their active lifestyle as soon as possible. In some ways, the approach that Dr. Ahmadi takes with athletes and other active individuals is different. Rather than getting them back to regular daily activities, like many patients, their treatment and healing needs to be able to stand up to daily and repeated use.

What are the most common sports injuries?

Injuries among athletes and sports enthusiasts are not unusual. The quick movements and frequent activity involved in sports means that injuries are almost expected. Some of the most common sports injuries seen by Dr. Matt Ahmadi, a sports medicine specialist in Orange County, are:

  • Achilles tendon tear – The Achilles tendon connects your ankle to your calf muscles. It is not uncommon for this tendon to tear (which involves a separation of the tendon fibers) during running or jumping.
  • Sprained ankle – About 25,000 individuals in the United States experience a sprained ankle every day. A sprain is caused by the ligament being stretched beyond what it is capable of. Sprains can develop as a result of landing on uneven ground or rolling or twisting the foot accidentally. There are different degrees and severities of sprains.
  • Turf toe – This is a sprain of the main joint found in your big toe. This can happen in nearly any sport and occurs when the toe is bent up beyond the normal range of movement.

Dr. Ahmadi offers services in a wide variety of foot and ankle deformities and pathology such as:
