Sports-Related Foot and Ankle Injuries on the Rise

Sometimes there is a rush to play after many foot and ankle injuries due to lack of knowledge about the different injuries by the athlete, coaches or even family members.  There is always the assumption that the injury is a minor “sprain” that does not need any medical intervention.  However, we have now learned that each injury should be evaluated individually and that the athletes should wait until the injury is healed before returning to play.  In addition, physical therapy and stretching is an important aspect of rehabilitation after an injury.  This is especially the case with ankle sprains which could result in chronic ankle instability if not fully healed and rehabilitated. To read more about foot and ankle injuries read the following excerpt from Medical News Today:

Sports-related injuries are part of the game, and as athletes are becoming stronger, faster, and better conditioned, higher-energy injuries are becoming common. Foot and ankle injuries are especially concerning because they are increasing in number and severity and are often misunderstood. read more.

I really prefer Mobdro over most other apps. It's a lot less hassle than most alternatives proposed. I see your point though.

As the Return to Sport Post-Rehabilitative Program Director for OrthoVirginia, I have seen my fair share of injuries. As a young athlete, I suffered countless ankle sprains and relied on my father's (great guy, but not a doctor) advice to recover from them. Later in life I developed bone spurs in my ankles that have altered my body's movement mechanics instigating injuries in other locations such as my hips and shoulders.

Medical review of athletic injury is always valuable because it sets you on the path to a proper recovery. Neglecting medical care after injury is like driving a car blindfolded - you have to do it all by feel and you'll never know if you're on the right path.
