Notre Dame’s nose tackle Louis Nix III was forced to undergo surgery due to tendonitis and a torn meniscus. As a result, Nix will be off the field for a season.
Nix received platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections and extensive surgery in order to help him return and prepare for the NFL draft. On a positive note, Nix is recovering well and is ranked 22nd overall on the Bleacher Report. Hopefully Nix will recover well and be back on the field.
Although it isn’t easy, returning to sports is possible with the right treatment. If you sustained a sports related foot or ankle injury, see podiatrist Dr. Mark Landry of Kansas. Dr. Landry can treat your foot and ankle injuries and conditions.
