Sports Injuries


These include sprains, strains, fractures (broken bones). A sprain injures the bands of

tissue that connect two bones together call ligaments, while a strain involves an injury to

a muscle or to the band of tissue that attaches a muscle to a bone called tendons. You

may have heard a popping sound at the time of injury. Rest is essential for healing to

occur faster, as well as elevation of injured part, use of ice compress and compression

band of the foot or ankle.

It may be time to see your foot and ankle doctor when having persistent pain, swelling,

or any difficulty in ambulating. An X-ray or even an MRI may be warranted to assess the

injury fully. One can expect to be prescribed a walking boot or cast, participate in

Physical therapy and possibly Surgery may be required if one’s foot/ankle is found to be

unstable.
