AnkleSTONE

Football & Rugby

Most everyone would agree that American Football and the more global Rugby represent two of the roughest of today’s popular sports. The only debate is which one is really the roughest.

Both RUGBY and Football are particularly hard on feet and ankles. Injuries can occur from running, side to side cutting, tackling and other trauma due to player contact and impact during competition. Injuries can also be caused by excessive training.

Following are some of the most common football and rugby injuries to players’ feet and ankles:
Achilles Ruptures
Achilles Tendonitis
Ankle Sprains
Peroneal Tendon Strain
Plantar Fasciitis
