Basketball means serious business

Foot and ankle tips for basketball players:

  • Sports injuries to the foot and ankle can be caused by improper warm-up, trauma and ill-fitting footwear.
  • Before you do anything, you must warm-up about 5-10 minutes.  Once you are warmed up, immediately go into your stretches.
  • Athletic shoes protect your feet from stresses caused by basketball and other sports.  Also gives you more traction.
  • The 'perfect' shoe is a high topped basketball shoe that has ankle support, shock absorption and fits just right.
