All sports have a risk of injury. In general, the more contact in a sport, the greater the risk of a traumatic injury. However, most injuries in young athletes are due to overuse. Most frequent sports injuries are sprains (injuries to ligaments) strains (injuries to muscles), and stress fractures (injury to bone) caused when an abnormal stress is placed on tendons, joints, bones and muscle.
After your injury, you will be given an exercise program that includes range of motion exercises and a gradual progression to full weight bearing. One simple exercise is to draw the letters of the alphabet with your toes. Gradual progression to weight-bearing exercises should follow. Proprioception exercises and other balance exercises can help you recover more quickly and should actually be preform as part of a prevention program. Poor balance is a good predictor of future ankle sprains. After an ankle injury, balance training is essential to recovery. In addition to our eyes and inner ears, there are special receptors in our joints (proprioceptors) that provide information about our position in space.
