“I’ve been running for years,” says Spine and Sports Medicine patient Joanie R. “Until recently, I’ve been pain free. But, my exercise was compromised by the pain I was feeling in my ankles.”

Running injuries are very specific due to the repetitive nature of the sport, and ankle injuries are the most common sport-related injuries. Many common conditions affect runners, including tendonitis, bursitis, shin splints, ankle and Achilles problems, and more.

“Common foot and ankle injuries include sprains, strains, and stress fractures or bone injuries,” says Dr. Kessler. “Many of these injuries are overuse injuries — injuries that result from inadequate conditioning or excessive training that places too much stress on the foot and ankle .”

Warning signs of a serious problem that merits immediate evaluation at our offices in Manhattan include the following: pain which increases during the run, locking or catching sensations in the ankle, especially after an injury, recurrent sprains or instability of the ankle, swelling across the front of the ankle joint, and localized bone tenderness, among others. When in doubt, have it checked out!

“I started treatment at Spine and Sports Medicine,” says Joanie, “and although it took some time and a commitment on my part, I am back to running again. They are very professional and motivated me to stay with the program.”
