Baseball and Foot/Ankle Injuries

Baseball is the national pastime in America. From kids to adults, playing baseball is one of the most enjoyable team sports. The rapid and changing movements associated with the sport place many pressures on your feet and ankles. Inadequatestretching, improper shoes, and repeated motions lead to the most common foot problems that occur among baseball players, such as Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, stress fractures, ankle sprains, and bone fractures.


Golf and How It Affects Your Feet!

A large part of the attraction of golf is the time spent outdoors. During an 18-hole round of golf, the typical player walks four-to-five miles over the course of three-to-five hours. Common foot injuries and problems associated with golf are related to overdoing it, particularly if an underlying structural problem exists in your feet.
