Jonathan Brown limps off Gabba pitchBrisbane Lions forward Jonathan Brown suffered a foot injury that could spell the end of his athletic career. The 31 year old athlete will be visiting a surgeon next week to get a better understanding of his injury, which seems to be a tear of the plantar fascia.

Although Lions coach Michael Voss wishes for Brown to play in 2014, Brown is unsure. “I just don’t want to go out there and play for the sake of it, or play for the money. I want to go out there and still be able to contribute.” Brown said. If his career is indeed at an end, “If I played my last game, so be it. I can live with that,” Brown told the AFL Footy Show.

Facing such an injury can be daunting, but with proper care returning to sports and activities is not impossible. Receiving treatment from a podiatrist such as Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care can help you manage your injury as well as provide solutions for how to get back into the sports you enjoy.

Getting Back into Sports after Foot and Ankle Injuries

Sprained ankles are a frustrating and painful ordeal many athletes go through. Recovery from a sprained ankle usually involves the RICE method. This includes:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Compression
  • Elevation

In addition, athletes should consider wearing an ankle brace in order to keep the ankle stabilized and alleviate any pain as it heals.

Stress fractures that occur in the foot and ankle come in two types. This includes stable and displaced. Stable stress fractures do not consist of any shifting in bone alignment while displaced stress fractures involve bone ends that do not line up.
