If you're an athlete, you know that your feet and ankles are some of the hardest working -- and most vulnerable -- parts of your body. Every time you run, jump, or change direction, your feet are there to support you, and every time you put stress on them, there's a risk of injury. While some injuries are minor and can be treated at home, others will require medical intervention to help you find relief from pain and ensure that you don’t experience any long-term complications.
