Foot and Ankle Prevention


The most common foot and ankle injuries are sprained ankles, injuries to the Achilles tendon, overuse injuries, and shin splints. Most mild injuries are treated with rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE). Many injuries can be prevented through proper training techniques. In addition, warming up before activity, stretching every day, accompanying activity with an appropriate strengthening program, and using proper shoes and other equipment greatly reduce the incidence of injury.
