Key Factors and Tips About Ankle Injuries While Running

Ankle injuries while running are common and can be caused by several factors. Overtraining often leads to fatigue, increasing the risk of improper form and accidents. Muscle strains can occur from inadequate warm-ups or sudden increases in intensity. Wearing the wrong shoes, especially those lacking proper support, can lead to instability and misalignment. To prevent these injuries, it is essential to incorporate rest days into your training schedule to allow muscles to recover. Ensuring a thorough warm-up before running can prepare muscles and reduce the risk of strains. Investing in high-quality running shoes that provide adequate support and cushioning is essential for maintaining proper form and stability. Listening to your body and avoiding pushing through pain can also help prevent serious injuries. If you have sudden or chronic ankle pain from running, it is suggested that you visit a podiatrist who can effectively treat this condition.

Sports related foot and ankle injuries require proper treatment before players can go back to their regular routines. For more information, contact Scott Burdge, DPM of Advanced Ankle & Foot. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Sports 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.
