Sports-Related Foot and Ankle Injuries

Trusted by Professional Athletes

The University Hospitals sports medicine team has been selected by organizations such as the National Football League and the International Olympic Committee to care for the most elite athletes.

The potential for foot or ankle injury is a special concern for athletes who participate in several sports at once or play sports year-round. For these individuals, common overuse injuries such as stress fractures can be more challenging to treat because the repetitive trauma incurred with continued training doesn’t allow the body time to heal.

In addition, milder injuries can weaken the foot and ankle structure, which can lead to chronic pain or instability.
