cj-mccollum2CJ McCollum suffered a fracture in the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot during a practice, the same injury McCollum incurred earlier this year.
As a result, the 6’4 guard will be undergoing surgery to help repair his broken foot. McCollum’s prior injury took him off the court for the rest of the previous season, but there is no timetable as to when he will recover from his current injury. The Trail Blazers guard was the 10th pick in the 2013 draft and averaged 23.9 points in 12 games as a senior.
Everyone should take care of their feet, especially for athletes that put stress on them daily. If you need help recovering from a foot or ankle injury, consider consulting a podiatrist like Dr. Neal Mozen of Foot Health Care Associates.
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 before they attempt to get back into their game.
