Imagine being a young athlete with a bright future ahead of you, working hard on your game, improving your skills, and dreaming of the day when you’ll be playing professionally. Foot pain is the last thing you need!

This was the case for one patient. He was a healthy, active 17-year-old boy practicing basketball six days a week. But during one of the practice sessions, he injured his right foot. The x-ray confirmed a minor fracture to the top of his right foot.

Even if the swelling was minimal and the injury not visible, the pain was usually a 6-7 and increased to 8-9 while standing or running. It was not looking good for improving his athletic performance.

The Foundation of Basketball Success

Many young athletes are faced with foot pain and injuries, and it’s crucial to know how to manage them correctly.

The foot is complex. It has 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It’s the foundation of your body, responsible for:

  • supporting your weight
  • absorbing shock
  • propelling you forward
  • jumping and landing

For athletes, however, the foot is crucial, foot pain is a red flag – and basketball players have a higher risk of foot injuries than other athletes.

Just picture them jumping, landing, sprinting, doing quick starts and stops, and making lateral movements!

It all puts serious stress on their feet. In fact, basketball players often experience injuries such as:

  • sprained ankles
  • stress fractures,
  • Achilles tendon injuries
  • plantar fasciitis

In this case, for the first day of Equiscope therapy, the technician used the immersion protocol and a y probe protocol and this resulted in an immediate reduction in pain by 70%.

The next day, the young man experienced significant foot pain before an important practice, so he underwent two similar sessions to the day before – carried out four hours apart.

After the session, he went off to practice despite feeling pain at the beginning. But a few minutes later, he felt a rush of blood to the foot, and the pain completely disappeared.

Three days later, he was able to play three basketball games with little to no pain.

This speed recovery was thanks to pico/microcurrent therapy. The Equiscope can open up cellular communication, increase the body’s bioenergy, and lead to improved circulation, reduced inflammation, and much-needed pain relief.

Equiscope therapy is a cutting-edge option for many sports injuries, such as

  • joint and ligament injuries,
  • soft tissue injuries,
  • acute sprains and strains,
  • muscle pain and burns,
  • broken bones, and
  • myofascial pain.

Pain-Free and Back on the Court

After each session, patients are recommended to rest, but this time the Equiscope technician was so amazed by the progress after the sessions that they were comfortable letting the patient return to practice as soon as possible.

It can be frustrating and disheartening to deal with foot pain as a basketball player, but with the proper care and attention, the patient got back to doing what he loves!
