Foot And Ankle Injuries
Your mobility is dependent on normally functioning feet and ankles. So, foot or ankle injuries can be painful and debilitating. These injuries can include:
- Broken bones
- Sprain or strain injury of ligament or tendons
- Bites or other puncture wounds
Foot and ankle injuries often occur in traumatic situations such as car collisions. They can also be caused by slip, trip and fall accidents. A fractured bone in the ankle might heal without permanent injury. A severe sprain or strain might require surgical repair and result in a permanent injury.
The foot and ankle are also frequently the target in an attack by a dog. If a dog bites you, the initial injury may seem trivial, a puncture mark or scratch, but complications may later occur such as severe infections and even rabies.
Victims of these types of injuries are often impaired for a considerable period of time. The injury drastically reduces the victim’s ability to engage in most daily activities, including work and recreational and domestic endeavors. If these injuries are permanent, the effect of such injuries is all the more serious.
