About Ankle & Foot Injuries
According to the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association, 75% of all Americans
experience foot problems of some kind in their lives. Between the feet’s
job of supporting your body’s total weight and the fact that it
contains over 50 bones, your feet are vulnerable to injury. The most common
sports-related foot and ankle injuries are sprains and fractures, according
to the National Library of Medicine.
Sprains are the result of ligament damage through stretching or tearing.
While many people experience foot problems, a recent study published by
the Hannover Medical School revealed that many patients do not receive
adequate care for traumatic foot injuries. As a result, many preventable
problems result in long-term mobility impairment.
