Many people who play spring sports such as softball and baseball can end up with injuries to their feet and ankles. Even major sport players can end up hurt like New York Yankees short stop, Derek Jeter, who is on the disabled list. Jeter broke his ankle going for a ground ball on October 13, 2012 and is still recovering.

Have you ever had ankle pain while playing sports? If so, you’ll know why so many players get placed on the Disabled List for ankle pain. And, once you hurt your ankle, you are more likely to reinjure it. So what can you do?

Here are some tips on how to get back to playing sports:
  • Rest and elevate the ankle.
  • Apply ice to reduce swelling.
  • Use compressive bandages to immobilize and support the injury during healing.

Once you are feeling better, use these tips to reduce chances of another injury:

  • Make sure to stretch before, during, and after playing a sport.
  • Make sure to wear the correct footwear.

If you or anyone you know doesn’t want to miss out on all the sports fun, make sure to keep on top of any foot or ankle pain. Make an appointment with a podiatrist to be sure you don’t end up hurting yourself even more. Local Podiatrist Dr. David Schlam would be happy to take care of any problems! Give Hollowbrook Foot Specialist, in Wappingers Falls a call to set up an appointment.
