sports injuriesThe stunning part of the fight between Manny Pacquiao and boxer Tim Bradley isn’t that Bradley lost; the mystery is why the beginning of the fight was a total domination by Bradley. Many are commenting that had Tim Bradley not sustained a brutal calf injury, he may have won that fight hands down.

This fight prompted many to suggest that Manny Pacquiao, long considered a legendary fighter, is losing his edge. Pacquaio is definitely not in his prime anymore.

Regardless of what people are speculating, the two boxers are set to have a third fight very soon which will most definitely settle, once and for all, who the better fighter truly is.

Playing with a sports foot or ankle injury can bring on unnecessary risks. If your foot or ankle is injured, see podiatrist Dr. Michael A. Stein, DPM of The Foot Doctor of East Bay. Dr. Stein will treat your foot and ankle conditions.

Playing Sports with Foot Injuries

Many types of foot injuries affect athletes over the course of their athletic career. Despite their setbacks, many of these athletes will continue to play with mild foot injuries and attempt to ‘push’ through the pain. In order to be able to prevent injuries, it is important to stretch before any activity, wear proper footwear and replace shoes as needed. Some of the foot injuries athletes are at risk for include:

  • Turf toe- upward bending of the big toe outside normal range of motion
  • Stress Fractures
  • Overpronation- excessive foot movement during gait
  • Plantar Fasciitis- swollen ligament in the foot’s base
  • Strains

There are many types of treatments that are necessary to keep the injury from becoming more serious. Ice is often used to reduce swelling and inflammation while applying a compression bandage can help reduce pain and stress on the foot. For more serious injuries it is recommended to consult with a podiatrist or orthopedic specialist as fractures and other serious conditions may require surgery.
