Foot injuries most commonly occur during sports or recreational activities, work-related tasks, or work or projects around the home.
Most of the time our body movements do not cause problems, but it's not surprising that symptoms develop from everyday wear and tear, overuse, or an injury and at one time or another, everyone has had a minor foot injury.
These are the 5 most common foot injury to look out for 1. Ankle Sprain, 2. Plantar Fasciitis, 3. Achilles Tendonitis or Tears, 4. Turf Toe, and 5. Broken Metatarsal
What Causes the Injuries of our Foot
Car accidents and sports injuries are responsible for many traumatic foot and ankle problems, such as fractures and sprains. Ordinary slips and falls also lead to foot and ankle injuries. Age-related wear and tear of joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles can make them prone to arthritis and injury.
Sports such as running, football, skiing, and other high-intensity exercises commonly lead to accidental injuries and overuse of the feet and ankles. Wearing shoes that don’t fit properly is another common cause of bunions, corns, calluses, and other foot and ankle conditions.
What are the Symptoms
Signs and symptoms of foot and ankle conditions depend on the specific problem. Pain is a common symptom. It can be sudden (acute) or long-lasting (chronic), dull or sharp, and may worsen with activity or when wearing shoes.
Sometimes, pain can even occur with the slightest touch. Other symptoms may include swelling, numbness, redness, bruising, and changes in the appearance of a toe or other part of the foot.
Treatment for your foot injury may include first aid measures (such as the application of a brace, splint, or cast), a special shoe which is called an orthotic device, physiotherapy, medicine, and, in some cases, surgery. Treatment depends on:
The location, type, and severity of your injury
When the injury occurred
Your age, your overall health condition, and your activities (such as work, sports, or hobbies)
