Whether you’re a seasoned runner or you're just getting started—doctors say foot and ankle pain can strike at any time. “A lot of people when they move down to warmer climates, they start doing sports that they’ve never done before, and unfortunately, as an adult, our bodies do not adjust as fast, and what happens is people jump into it rather quickly, and they get injuries,” said Dr. Chelsea Viola, a podiatric surgeon on the medical staff of Lee Health.

The most common foot and ankle injuries are ligament sprains and tendon strains—injuries that can be caused by over-use or inappropriate footwear. “When it comes to something like tennis or pickleball, we tend to see a lot of ankle injuries in which case we do recommend proper tennis shoes. Those are made to stabilize the ankle a bit more,” she said. For ligament sprains and tendon strains, she recommends the RICE method: rest, ice, compression, elevation. This can help decrease swelling and pain.
