Sports Injuries to the Foot and Ankle

Foot and ankle problems usually fall into the following categories:

  • Acquired from improper footwear, physical stress, or small mechanical changes within the foot.
  • Arthritic foot problems, which typically involve one or more joint.
  • Congenital foot problems, which occur at birth, are generally inherited.
  • Infectious foot problems, which are caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal disorders.
  • Neoplastic disorders, usually called tumors, which are the result of abnormal growth of tissue and may be benign or malignant.
  • Traumatic foot problems, which are associated with foot and ankle injuries.

Depending on the sport, your feet and ankles can certainly take a beating from repetitive play. For more information on the injury risk factors while palying your favorite sport, see the topics listed below or also read the article, Foot Health Facts for Athletes.
