Broncos LT Sprains Ankle

The Denver Broncos were recently relieved to find out that their starting left tackle, Garett Bolles, only sprained his ankle as opposed to injuring his Achilles tendon or breaking his leg. Bolles was one of the top draft picks this year and is one of the Broncos' best players; losing him this early would’ve hurt their chances for the season. Regardless, due to the high ankle sprain, he will be out for a couple of weeks until he heals. Bolles suffered the injury while playing against the Cowboys and was left walking with a cane and boot.

Sports related foot and ankle injuries require proper treatment before players can go back to their regular routines. For more information, contact Dr. Donald Manger of Associated Podiatric Physicians, PA. Dr. Manger can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Sports Related Foot and Ankle Injuries

Foot and ankle injuries are a common occurrence when it comes to athletes of any sport. While many athletes dismiss the initial aches and pains, the truth is that ignoring potential foot and ankle injuries can lead to serious problems. As athletes continue to place pressure and strain the area further, a mild injury can turn into something as serious as a rupture and may lead to a permanent disability. There are many factors that contribute to sports related foot and ankle injuries, which include failure to warm up properly, not providing support or wearing bad footwear. Common injuries and conditions athletes face, including:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Plantar Fasciosis
  • Achilles Tendinitis
  • Achilles Tendon Rupture
  • Ankle Sprains

Sports related injuries are commonly treated using the RICE method. This includes rest, applying ice to the injured area, compression and elevating the ankle. More serious sprains and injuries may require surgery, which could include arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery. Rehabilitation and therapy may also be required in order to get any recovering athlete to become fully functional again. Any unusual aches and pains an athlete sustains must be evaluated by a licensed, reputable medical professional.
