Ankle InjuriesAn alarming number of professional football players have been disabled so far this season due to injuries sustained to their feet and ankles, NFL insider Pat Kirwan claims. At last count there were 171 players on the injured reserve list for this season, up significantly from 99 players at the same time last year.

According to Kirwan a large portion of these injuries are in the ankle and foot region, and are mainly caused by improper footwear and new artificial field turf. Many players have recently been opting to wear more light-weight cleats that are comfortable but don’t provide enough support. They also wear spiked cleats that are meant to dig into the ground, and therefore create too much traction on the synthetic playing surfaces.

Everyone should take care of feet, but this goes double for athletes that put stress on them daily. If you need help recovering from a foot or ankle injury, consider consulting a chiropodist like Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotics Clinics.

Foot Rehabilitation for Athletes

Injured athletes are always looking for better, faster ways to aid their recovery and get back to the sport they love. To do this, podiatrists and physical therapists are often consulted so the injured athlete can get back onto the field as soon as possible. But rehabbing an injury is just as serious as the injury itself, and going through the motions of physical therapy or rehabilitation is a necessary process to keeping that injury at bay.

Sports Therapist or Physical Therapist?

If an athlete gets a foot injury, it is essential to receive foot rehabilitation to ensure proper healing. Sports therapists are more focused on athletic-related injuries than general physical therapists. It is important for an athlete to become healed properly before they attempt to get back into their game.
