The most common injuries to the foot and ankle joint include:

Rupture or tear of the Achilles tendon

The Achilles tendon is the tendon that connects the heel bone to the calf muscles, which is always used when running or jumping. Occasionally, the tendon is ruptured or torn at the typical moment when you push off your feet, break into a run or perform a stop-and-start movement.

Symptoms of an Achilles tendon rupture include:

  • sudden swelling and bruising around the foot or ankle
  • sharp wedging pain in the back of the ankle
  • difficulty walking and climbing stairs
  • inability to stand on tiptoe and jump up

Sports fracture

Many sports that involve a lot of running and jumping, such as basketball, football, handball, as well as normal sporting activities, can cause injuries to the leg, foot and ankle/ankle joint.  Bones, mainly the shin bone and a bone in the foot called the metatarsus, can fracture as a result.

Symptoms include:

  • pain that is worse with activity and less severe with rest
  • pain and swelling when standing
  • tenderness/pain in the bones.
