Leonard Fournette Suffers Foot Injury

Running back Leonard Fournette of the Jacksonville Jaguars has recently been suffering from a foot-related injury. Although the specifics of the injury have not been revealed, the team has announced that they plan to be careful with him. Fournette is no stranger to injuries; he battled with them throughout his last season with the LSU Tigers. As a result, he had to miss five games. While it is unfortunate that the Jaguars’ first round pick has to deal with these health issues, they have enough depth at the running back position to sustain themselves in his absence.

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.
