The 5th metatarsal 𝐛𝐨𝐧𝐞 is the most commonly fractured. Fracturing can occur if the foot is twisted or rolls inwards, which can also lead to ankle sprain.
Mild foot 𝐬𝐩𝐫𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐬 and strains can normally be successfully treated through rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE). Most minor-to-moderate injuries will heal within 2 to 4 weeks.
When 𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐧𝐬 become injured or torn, it can cause pain, swelling, weakness in the foot and ankle, and discomfort when standing, walking or playing sports.
Plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the plantar fascia) is the most common foot 𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 injury. It’s also the most common cause of heel pain.
