You may wonder… Why are the feet vulnerable in Basketball? Dr. Reminga says that Basketball maneuvers can put a tremendous amount of stress on the feet and ankles. In the NBA, the average height of a player is 6 ft. 7 in., while the average weight is 222 lbs. The large size of many professional league players adds an added element of risk when it comes to foot and ankle injuries. Whether a professional or ameteur, the feet are under a lot of stress during basketball. There’s tremendous weight bearing on the feet with all the running, twisting, turning, side to side maneuvers, jumping during the game. Each of these movements put ALL areas of the feet at risk.

Foot and ankle injuries are common in basketball. Dr. Reminga talks about basketball related injuries such as a Sprained Ankle, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Pain, and Stress Fractures. Listen to today’s program as Dr. Reminga concludes his Summer Sports Series and provides helpful information to avoid foot and ankle injuries while enjoying the sport of Basketball.
