Sports-Related Foot and Ankle Injuries

Sports-related foot and ankle injuries are very common due to repetitive movement, quick changes in the body’s stance, wearing restrictive shoes and body-to-body contact. Some common foot and ankle injuries are Achilles tendonitis, sesamoiditis, ankle sprains, pulled muscles, broken toes and broken ankles. Stretching before and after an activity can help reduce and prevent these injuries by loosening the muscles and warming them up. Wearing shoes with sufficient cushioning and shock absorption is also very important, especially in aerobic activities that put added pressure on the joints. Treatment for sports-related foot and ankle injuries will depend on the severity, but may include icing the area, stretching, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medicine and rest. Surgery may be considered in severe cases to repair any damage to the tissue, muscle or bone.
