The foot and ankle are among the most common sites for both acute and chronic injuries in athletes and other physically active individuals. When an injury to the foot or ankle occurs athletes are limited in their abilities to run, jump, kick, and change directions. Thus, the treatment and rehabilitation of these injuries are crucial in returning athletes to full participation at full functioning. Treatment will initially involve a period of immobilisation to decrease pain and swelling followed by physical therapy to restore range of motion, balance and strength. A graduated return to physical activity that includes manual therapy, sports-specific therapeutic exercises and education are recommended with the primary goals being to allow a safe return to sport while minimizing the risk of recurrent injuries.
