Sport Related Foot And Ankle Injuries 

Foot and ankle injuries are a common occurrence when it comes to athletes of any sport. While many athletes dismiss the initial aches and pains, the truth is that ignoring potential foot and ankle injuries can lead to serious problems. As athletes continue to place pressure and strain the area further, a mild injury can turn into something as serious as a rupture and may lead to a permanent disability. There are many factors that contribute to sports related foot and ankle injuries, which include failure to warm up properly, not providing support or wearing bad footwear. Common injuries and conditions athletes face, including:

• Plantar Fasciitis
• Plantar Fasciosis
• Achilles Tendinitis
• Achilles Tendon Rupture
• Ankle Sprains

Sports-related injuries are commonly treated using the RICE method. This includes rest, applying ice to the injured area, compression and elevating the ankle. More serious sprains and injuries may require surgery, which could include arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery. Rehabilitation and therapy may also be required in order to get any recovering athlete to become fully functional again. Any unusual aches and pains an athlete sustains must be evaluated by a licensed, reputable medical professional.

Description: Cyclones Gymnastics Beauty and the BeastJunior gymnast Milan Ivory returned to competition this season after being sidelined for her sophomore year after tearing her achilles tendon. Ivory was unaware of her injury and continued practice until her team noticed there was something wrong. “I tried to get up and shake it off,” Ivory commented, “Everyone else heard it pop but I was in the middle of a routine so I didn’t hear it or anything. It just felt like (someone) kicked me”. After a year of physical therapy she was able to return to competition although she has not fully recovered. “She’s not there yet-not at all- I would say she’s probably 75 percent of the athlete she was but she’s on her way back,” ISU gymnastics coach Jay Ronayne said, “You will see a progression. You will see her getting back.”
