sports injuryOrioles’ catcher Matt Wieters left the game after his ankle rolled in the bottom of the fourth inning during a 6-5 loss against the Red Sox.  "Just precautionary," manager Buck Showalter said of the move. "He's fine. [He] went in and got some ice on it."

The foot injury was sustained as Wieters walked with the bases loaded to drive in a run in the fourth inning; he moved to second on a wild pitch, and then ran to third rolling his ankle on Ryan Flaherty’s inning ground out. Wieters will have some days off which will help him heal and rest his feet. "[Head athletic trainer] Richie [Bancells] said during the season he would have continued to play," Showalter said. "Just wanted to get some ice on it make sure it doesn't turn into something worse."

Getting back into sports from a foot or ankle injury can be frustrating and take time. If you sustained a foot or ankle injury and have been out on the sidelines as a result, see podiatrist Dr. Michael A. Stein of East Bay. Dr. Stein can help you get back into the game.  

Getting Back into Sports after Foot and Ankle Injuries

Sprained ankles are a frustrating and painful ordeal many athletes go through. Recovery from a sprained ankle usually involves the RICE method. This includes:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

In addition, athletes should consider wearing an ankle brace in order to keep the ankle stabilized and alleviate any pain as it heals.

Stress fractures that occur in the foot and ankle come in two types. This includes stable and displaced. Stable stress fractures do not consist of any shifting in bone alignment while displaced stress fractures involve bone ends that do not line up.
