Foot & Ankle Facts
Due to the way they foot and ankle are built and their near-constant use, they can be injured in countless ways. A few facts:
- Walking puts up to 1.5 times your bodyweight on your feet.
- Your feet log approximately 1,000 miles per year.
- As shock absorbers, feet cushion up to one million pounds of pressure during one hour of strenuous exercise.
As a result, it’s not surprising that more than 4.8 million visits are made to orthopedic offices each year from foot and ankle problems, including 1.2 million visits for ankle sprains and 675,000 due to ankle fractures.
How Injuries Occur
Foot injuries are especially frequent in the sports arena. An athlete in a physically demanding sport like football or basketball runs the risk of any number of injuries, including Achilles tendonitis, stretched or torn ligaments, dislocations or broken bones.
Additionally other factors such as improperly fitted footwear, can contribute to foot and ankle injuries. And even normal wear and tear adds up over time, leading to a range of conditions that manifest with age, such as plantar fasciitis.
