Giants Cornerback Eli Apple Sustains Ankle Injury

Tuesday, 05 September 2017 00:00

New York Giants Cornerback Eli Apple recently suffered an ankle injury. He sustained the injury during a very close-scoring Giants vs Jets preseason game. While the Giants came out on top, the second year player was left with an injury. Apple had previously injured his other ankle, which comes on top of a number of other afflictions and conditions which have left him on the sidelines for awhile. Giants coach Ben McAdoo is concerned with his condition and how long he’ll be out for. It is currently unknown how severe the injury is.

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.
