Traumatic injuries of the foot and ankle are very common in athletes, both professional and amateur. Increased competition means these athletes push themselves sometimes well past their limits, increasing the prevalence foot and ankle injuries at a rapid pace. According to studies by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, 25% of all injuries reported by athletes were foot and ankle-related. Particular sports, including football, basketball, soccer and running, generate more foot and ankle injuries seeing as their feet are the main points of contact, sometimes generating over 20 times the athlete's body weight in force.

Athletic foot and ankle injuries can be difficult to properly diagnose and treat and so healthcare professionals who treat these injuries must have a firm understanding of the anatomy and kinesiology of the foot and ankle and know which rehab options are most effective.

This series is a must watch for healthcare professionals seeking to elevate their understanding of the most common foot and ankle injuries in athletes.
