MLB Outfielder Will Require Post Surgery Rehabilitation for Bone Spur Removal

Andres TorresAndres Torres of the San Francisco Giants will undergo surgery on Wednesday in order to have bone spurs removed in his left Achilles tendon. As a result, the 35 year old outfielder will require up to six months of rehabilitation according to manager Bruce Bochy.

“He had his ups and downs just like our team,” Bochy commented, “He struggled from the left side. In the outfield, he wasn’t as sharp defensively. He thinks the Achilles played a part in that. It’s fair to say, it wasn’t the type of year he was hoping for and we were hoping for.” Torres’ position will be given among the recalled players from the roster expansion.

If you are an athlete who has suffered a foot injury, consider seeking the care of a podiatrist, like Dr. Andrew H. Cohen of Mid-Michigan Foot and Ankle Center.  Dr. Cohen will be able to help speed up your rehabilitation process effectively, minimizing the risk of re-injuring the affected area.

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 original injury or even suffer a new one due to their weakened state.
