Avoid trauma to avoid injury
Fractures and sprains can occur for many reasons. One of the main reasons is when a person steps wrong on their foot and it causes it to twist or turn in an unnatural manner. This stretches the tendons, causing a sprain. A fracture is when you break the bones in your foot or ankle.
Ensure that you heal properly
Injury is the most common cause of sprains and fractures in the feet or ankles. Your feet and ankles provide support for your body, so if they are injured and don’t heal properly, it can cause problems.
