What are the most prevalent foot and ankle injuries?

Ankle sprains. Sprained ankles are one of the most common injuries in sports. Because the inner ankle is more stable than the outer ankle, the foot is likely to turn inward (ankle inversion) from a fall, tackle, or jump. This stretches or tears ligaments; the result is an ankle sprain.
Raynaud's Disease

Raynaud's Disease is a disorder that affects the feet. It is caused by contraction of the smooth muscles controlling the small arteries supplying circulation into the hands and feet. This contraction, or "vasospasm," makes the arteries so small that they restrict blood flow. Exposure to cold temperature can often bring on a vasospasm.

Raynaud's Disease is most common in young women, and has no known cause. It typically is found in both feet and both hands.
