                         Injury Overview
•   Sprain: Stretching or tearing of ligamentous or capsular tissue.
•   Strain: Stretching or tearing of muscle fibers.
•   Tendinitis: Inflammation of the muscle tendon.
•   Fracture: A break in bone or cartilage.
•   Dislocation: Disassociation of the joint’s articulating surfaces
    caused by forces that rupture many of the joint’s soft tissue
• Stress Fracture: A fracture caused by repetitive stress, as may
    occur in sports, strenuous exercise, or heavy physical labor.
                    Foot Injuries

• Plantar Fasciitis
  – Inflammation of the plantar fascia
  – MOI:
     • Acute: Forced dorsiflexion with toe extension
     • Chronic: Increased activity, additional running
       distance, changing surface, and/or using new/different
                    Foot Injuries

• First Metatarsophalangeal Joint Sprain (“Turf
  – Sprain of the 1st MTP joint.
  – MOI:
     • Hyperextension of the 1st MTP joint.
                 Ankle Injuries

• Inversion Ankle Sprain
  – MOI: Inversion, plantarflexion, or
    talor rotation in any combination
• Eversion Ankle Sprain
  – MOI: Eversion and/or rotation
• Syndesmosis Sprains (“High Ankle
  – MOI: External rotation of the
    talus and/or dorsiflexion
                          Ankle Injuries

• Achilles Tendon Rupture
  – Rupture of the Achilles tendon
  – MOI: Forceful plantarflexion with eccentric
    loading (usually the result of eccentric
    loading or plyometric contraction of the calf

• Achilles Tendinitis
  – Inflammation of the Achilles tendon
  – MOI: Overuse or secondary to acute trauma
    (example: a blow to the tendon), improperly
    fitting shoes rubbing on the tendon may also
    activate the inflammatory response
