Basketball

If you play basketball, you know how easy it is to be sidelined by injury. When they occur, proper treatment is needed to get players back on the court.

For those of us who are spectators, it seems as if there’s at least one injury to a player’s lower extremities in just about every game. Constant all-out sprints, jumping, fast cuts and hard stops are inherent in basketball. Add player contact like being stepped on or stepping on another player’s foot or ankle and these types of injuries become all too common. Few other sports continually place the level of stress on feet and ankles as does basketball.

Following are some of the most common basketball injuries to players’ feet and ankles:
Achilles Ruptures
Achilles Tendonitis
Ankle Sprains
Avulsion Fracture
Jones Fracture
Plantar Fasciitis
