Ankle InjuryFigure skater Yuna Kim will be on the sidelines for approximately 6 weeks after injuring a metatarsal in her right foot, according to Eurosport. “During training Yuna felt a lot of pain in her right foot,” a Korean Skating Union official said.

“The diagnosis she received is that she would need around six weeks to recover and will also require physio after she returns.” The recovery time required will potentially cause 23 year old Kim to miss both grand prix assignments, reports KpopStarz. With rival Miki Ando returning after missing the last two seasons, Kim’s dominance on the ice may be short.

Facing such an injury can be daunting, but with proper care returning to sports and activities is not impossible. Receiving treatment from a podiatrist such as Dr. Nicholas Crismali of Crismali Foot & Ankle help you manage your injury as well as provide solutions for how to get back into the sports you enjoy.

Getting Back into Sports after Foot and Ankle Injuries

Sprained ankles are a frustrating and painful ordeal many athletes go through. Recovery from a sprained ankle usually involves the RICE method. This includes:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

In addition, athletes should consider wearing an ankle brace in order to keep the ankle stabilized and alleviate any pain as it heals.

Stress fractures that occur in the foot and ankle come in two types. This includes stable and displaced. Stable stress fractures do not consist of any shifting in bone alignment while displaced stress fractures involve bone ends that do not line up.

Jessica Ennis-HillTrack and fielder Jessica Ennis-Hill had to cancel her scheduled heptathlon in Tallinn because of an ankle injury. According to the UK Athletics, the athlete will continue to receive training, and treatments, instead of undergoing strenuous activity which can impact her ankle further.

There have been questions regarding whether Ennis-Hill will able to compete in the World Championships in Moscow. "I have been running and putting some force through the ankle but (coach) Toni (Minichiello) and I feel that doing a heptathlon is not the best option to achieving a full recovery, and day by day it is feeling much more free and comfortable. My job is to get her to Moscow in one piece, and in good shape, and that is my priority," said Ennis-Hill.  

If you are an athlete or are trying to get back into sports after suffering a foot injury you should seek the care of a podiatrist like Dr. Nicholas Crismali of Crismali Foot & Ankle. Dr. Crismali can assess your condition and provide you with the care needed for your feet.

While one of the most common injuries among athletes may be a sprained ankle, there are still many other types of injuries that plague athletes in any sport. But for less severe foot and ankle injuries, it is recommended by physical therapists and sports medicine doctors that athletes use the R.I.C.E. method to help alleviate pain and to speed up the healing process.

The acronym R.I.C.E. stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. These four steps help in the healing process, not only to reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation, but also to improve overall health of the affected area, allowing you to get back on to your feet again. Although resting is usually the key to all healing, it is necessary to see a doctor to ensure treatment for any other problems that may not be obvious to you right away.

It is best for injured athletes to allow themselves time to heal. Some athletes need hours of re-training, exercise, check-ups with their physical therapist, and other remedies. But with the right attitude and motivation, it is not hard to get back into sports after foot and ankle injuries.
