jimmy grahamJimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints may have suffered a torn plantar fascia in his foot, but his team has no intention of keeping this tight end out of games. In week 8 of the season Graham scored two touchdowns, almost appearing perfectly fit to coaches and fantasy drafters.

However, Graham’s condition is unlikely to heal as the season goes on. Some experts, in fact, believe that as long as the Saints keep placing Graham on the field, his injury is probably going to worsen. Graham can either receive surgery to correct the problem or allow the tissue to tear on its own. Choosing to the let the tissue tear on its own will have similar effects but be more a painful ordeal.

If you think you may be suffering from a sports related foot injury, it is best to seek a chiropodist such as Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotics Clinics. Marz Hardy can help treat your injuries and prevent any permanent damage.

Playing Sports with Foot Injuries

Many types of foot injuries affect athletes over the course of their athletic career. Despite their setbacks, many of these athletes will continue to play with mild foot injuries and attempt to ‘push’ through the pain. In order to be able to prevent injuries, it is important to stretch before any activity, wear proper footwear and replace shoes as needed. Some of the foot injuries athletes are at risk for include:

· Turf toe- upward bending of the big toe outside normal range of motion
· Stress Fractures
· Overpronation- excessive foot movement during gait
· Plantar Fasciitis- swollen ligament in the foot’s base
· Strains

There are many types of treatments that are necessary to keep the injury from becoming more serious. Ice is often used to reduce swelling and inflammation while applying a compression bandage can help reduce pain and stress on the foot. For more serious injuries it is recommended to consult with a podiatrist or orthopedic specialist as fractures and other serious conditions may require surgery.
