The foot and ankle are the foundation for athletic movement and performance.
Many foot and ankle injuries occur as a result of repetitive stress from running or jumping that causes wear and tear on the joints tendons and soft tissues around the foot and ankle.
Some injuries can be caused by footwear that doesn’t fit properly or provides poor support for your foot. Still others occur when an athlete skips doing warm-up stretches and exercises prior to participating in a sport or activity, or when they use an improper form or technique during play.
Occasionally surgical intervention is required to treat significant problems they don’t improve with other therapies.
