Dr Shankar said often patients tend to neglect the initial injury and continue with their activities only to present when they face problems in mobilising or with their routine activities. With an increase in the professional and recreational sporting activities, sports related injuries have increased in the public.
These injuries also involve foot and ankle regions and are a common cause of keeping the sportsmen and women sidelined from sporting activities.
