Lower limb and ankle injuries encompass a wide range of conditions and can be caused by various factors, such as sports activities, overuse, trauma, or underlying medical conditions.
Common types of lower limb injuries include:
- Sprains (ligaments that support the ankle are stretched or torn)
- Strains (muscles or tendon that support the ankle are stretched or torn)
- tendonitis - e.g Achilles tendonitis - The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the body, connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone.
- Medial tibial stress syndrome (Shin Splints) - inflammation of the muscles, tendons and bone around the shin.
- Stress fractures
Each injury presents its own set of symptoms and requires specific treatment approaches.
