Can you sprain the arch of your foot?

Recommended Posts

Playing 5-a-side tonight, I went to clear the ball up field and when my foot followed through, one of the blokes on the other side who was trying to volley the ball connected with the underside of the arch of my foot leaving me in a heap on the floor.

 

I carried on for the rest of the game thinking I could run it off, but the pain's continued. Got home tonight, took my trainer off and the bridge of my foot is puffed up like a balloon. My ankle is absolutely fine, the swelling is further forward than that - current sat here with an ice pack on it...

 

Anyone got any ideas? Well looking forward to the pain in the morning! :D

I don't think it will be a sprain as there are no tendons or ligaments in the arch are there?

 

More likely to be deep bruising, still painful though.

Props to the Doc, a much better response than you usually get i.e. "it's a virus"

Slid in at the far post to bury it in the net and my foot followed through and connected with the goalpost... ;)

I got the old plantar Fasciitis injury in my 2nd game last season. Couldnt play for a month and I still have to wear pads and gel insoles. Nasty little bugger.

 

Then went on to pull a hamstring and strain knee ligaments just after Chrimbo. Out for 3 months.

 

Felt like Kieron Dyer...but without the lighter and £50 notes.

Take anti-inflammatories and keep it elevated.  Might not be wise to drive if it's too painful.

As for the driving, I've got cruise control - i just hope the fuckers move out of my way cos i'm not braking! :D

because we have no 'head height' or 'no people in the box' rules in our games! :D

 

Football is football - bollocks to all these non-contact rules! ;)

The word 'Woos' springs to mind ;)

 

A little bump and he's crippled ;)

 

:D

 

Keep it elevated, as instructed, but more importantly, get your lass to run after you ;)

Sounds like you have damaged your plantar fascia like, as has been suggested - basically you may have torn the connective tissue on the soles of your feet.

 

I suffer from intemittent plantar fasciitis. It's pretty bad - about 3 or 4 times a year I wake up to find I can't put any weight on my feet. Nothing helps - it's an extremely nasty and debilitating condition.
