Foot and Ankle Sports Injuries

Monday, January 20th, 2014 Innovative Foot and Ankle

Proper care of your feet and ankles is the first step in injury prevention. Stretching daily will help keep your muscles, tendons and ligaments from tightening up during your activity. A good way to prevent stress fractures is to gradually increase activity to desired level. Custom orthotics can be placed in your running shoes, cleats and dress shoes, therefore help in preventing a injury from occurring. Due to high stress that sports and recreational activities place on our bodies a variety of injuries may occur. They include: fractures, ligament and muscle sprains, tendonitis, achilles tendon injuries, turf toe, bruises, blisters and bone spurs. Treatment depends on the type of injury and severity. Conservative measures are used first, but some injuries may require surgery.
