Foot and Ankle Injuries In Sports

Exercise can be beneficial to our bodies, including our feet and ankles, if we go about exercising the right way. Sports can also be beneficial, but we need to be careful when playing sports to avoid injury to our feet and ankles.

Injuries to the feet and ankles are common in sports. There are some ways you can help to avoid sustaining injuries, however.

Here are a few tips on caring for your feet while playing sports:

  • Always wear appropriate, well-fitting shoes when playing sports.
  • Always play on appropriate surfaces.
  • Get in shape, but be sure to condition yourself gradually. Don’t push yourself so hard that you sustain an injury because your body wasn’t ready for the next step yet.
  • Always stretch appropriately. You should stretch for 15-20 minutes before and after any activity.

Also, if you feel pain in your feet or ankles while playing sports, stop and rest. Don’t push yourself through pain. If you do, you can cause damage to your feet or ankles if they aren’t already injured.

For more information, check out our guide to purchasing the right workout shoes.
