Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine Reviews
I got in quickly, started treatment, will have a followup. Easy ability to contact for information. My visit initiated with the doctor. In-office x-rays, specialization. All around foot care.
Everyone was great,Very professional. I was totally impressed with the DR.
I had a very positive experience on my visit to Dr M. The office staff was efficient and friendly. I was examined, diagnosed and treated very effectively by Dr. M and was on my way in no time. I would highly recommend this office.
Dr. Muchowski is amazing! He has been working with us for approx. 2 years. His care and understanding for sports injury's is first class. I would recommend him to all athletes having any pain or injury.
I had a really bad ingrown toenail. It was the week of Thanksgiving and when I called, understandably there were no appointments available but Jazzy got me scheduled for the very next appointment available the following Tuesday. Dr. Muchowksi was fantastic! He got my toe sorted out quickly and with the utmost skill and care. He gave clear post-procedure care instructions and the toe looks and feels great. I can't speak highly enough of the professionalism and kindness of all of the staff here! Hopefully I won't have to see you all too soon (hehe) but if I have any issues, you all have a patient for life!

Sports Injuries FAQs
What causes most sports injuries in the foot and ankle?
Most sports injuries can be classified as direct-impact injuries, which occur when an object (or another person) comes in contact with your foot or ankle, or indirect-impact injuries, like twists or “torquing” movements from pivoting or other movements. Many foot and ankle injuries occur as a result of repetitive stress from running or jumping that causes wear and tear on the:
• Soft tissues
Over time, these repetitive strains can cause damage on their own, or they can weaken the tissues and structures of your foot so it’s more prone to injuries. Some injuries can be caused by footwear that doesn’t fit properly or provide enough support for your foot. Still others occur when an athlete skips doing warm-up stretches and exercises prior to participating in a sport or activity, or when they use an improper form or technique during play.
What kinds of sports injuries are most likely to occur in the feet and ankles?
Your feet and ankles contain dozens of bones, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues, and athletic activities can cause injuries to any of these. Still, there are some sports injuries that are more common, like:
• Sprains or torn ligaments
• Strains and tendon injuries like tendonitis
• Muscle injuries and deep bruising
• Joint injuries
Kids sometimes experience injuries in their growth plates, the ends of the bones that are still growing and developing. When that happens, proper treatment is critical to prevent deformities that can cause mobility issues all the way through adulthood.
How are sports injuries treated and diagnosed?
The team at Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine has extensive training in diagnosing and treating sports-related injuries in athletes of all skill levels, in all types of sports, and at all ages, including student-athletes in:
• Elementary school
• Middle school
• High school
Diagnosis begins with a review of your medical history and your symptoms, followed by a visual evaluation of your foot or ankle. Sometimes, the team at Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine will use gentle movements of your foot or ankle to assess the injury. In many cases, they'll order diagnostic imaging, like X-rays or CT scans.
Colorado Foot + Ankle Sports Medicine believes strongly in providing highly customized treatment plans to help patients experience a full recovery so they can return to their activities as soon as possible. Treatment begins with conservative options like therapeutic exercises, custom orthotics, casting, and splinting, with surgery reserved for injuries that can’t be effectively treated with these approaches.
