New York Mets’ Justin Turner Sprains Ankle
Justin Turner, infielder for the New York Mets, sprained his right ankle Saturday in a game against the Miami Marlins.
The injury comes at unfortunate time for the Mets. Turner had just been named as a leading candidate to replace the injured David Wright as third baseman.
Fortunately, Turner’s ankle sprain didn’t appear to be severe, so hopefully he will be able to get back in the game soon.
Ankle sprains are a common sports injury and whether they are severe or not, you should have the ankle evaluated and treated appropriately. Untreated ankle sprains can lead to chronic ankle instability.
Also, without an x-ray an ankle fracture can also be confused with an ankle sprain.
If you have suffered a sports injury, such as an ankle sprain or fracture, you should stop playing immediately. Never try to push yourself through pain. You can cause further damage to foot or ankle, which can mean a longer recovery period in the long run.
