Some sports, including basketball, running, football, soccer, and dancing, can be riskier in terms of foot and ankle injuries. Early attention and intervention will help avoid chronic injury and prolong absences from sports and other delayed activities.

Your feet are often regarded as the foundation of your body. They help you stay balanced to enable you to perform your daily activities. So if you are suffering a sports injury in any of your feet, seek professional help immediately.

COMMON REASONS FOR FOOT INJURIES

Some common factors that contribute to foot and ankle injuries in the arena of sports are:

Insufficient stretching or warm-up
Not wearing footwear according to your particular sport
Not taping or providing your feet with the required support
Ignoring the necessary safety measures
Overuse injuries
Sprain/strain

INJURIES RELATED TO SPORTS

Achilles tendinitis and bursitis
It affects the largest tendon in the body, called the Achilles tendon and can be caused due to overuse. The condition can be painful and may lead to further complications such as a tear.
Plantar fasciitis
A band of tissues supports the arch of your foot. When this band experiences too much stress, it leads to plantar fasciitis. Strain can occur from repetition during sporting activities.
Stress fractures
A stress fracture is usually a small crack in the bone that causes a great deal of discomfort and is very painful. It can arise due to many reasons, including improper shoes or techniques, lack of conditioning, and repetitive stress placed on the foot.

If you are a sportsperson or often participate in sports activities, you must know how to keep your feet and ankles safe. Contact Podiatric Consultants to learn more about foot care during sports or treatment options for your injury.
