Heel Injury From Jumping
Yes, like everyone: Else. A lot depends on a number of factors: like which specific ligament, or the severity of the injury, any past injury to the specific ligament which has been reinjured, general health condition, the timing of the diagnosis and treatment start, any associated injuries, etc. Are you interested in specific ligament's injury? ...Read more
Unlikely: Jumping barefoot vs jumping with shoes on does not put extra stress on your knee. Of course, landing wrong may hurt something! cushioned shoes will provide some protection to the jarring forces to your knee when jumping. Studies that compare people who wear shoes with those who don't have not shown an improvement with shoe wear in terms of foot/ankle/knee injury. ...Read more
Need an Xray: A direct impact to an ankle can result in a fracture and the only way to truly evaluate for a fractured ankle is an x-ray. Just because a person can walk and that pain is "not bad" does not always mean there is not a fracture. Go to a foot and ankle specialist and have your ankle evaluated. ...Read more
Can jumping and landing on heels/straight leg cause a concussion from vibrations? Or running and then slamming heel to stop abruptly (head whiplash)?
Technically yes BUT: Just because something is possible doesn't mean probable! Certainly if someone jumped from a high enough distance, the landing force could cause injury, but a lot of parachutists who land at 20 to 30 miles per hour do just fine, without injury. Acrobats do leaps and twists without injury. So, typically in normal running and jumping, the body can accommodate and protect us. ...Read more

Depends: If you just twisted your knee during tennis and cannot continue then i would ice the knee, wrap it and elevate it. If the pain passes quickly and you can run, plant and pivot to hit balls then yes by all means stretch a little first.

Can ankle and heel pain be caused by nerve compression on the cervical spine? Ankle pain feels like peroneal tendonitis.
Can mucoid degeneration cause an MCL sprain just from walking up stairs? No twisting, just stepped up and felt knee lock. Diagnosed with grade 01-02 MCL sprain with some mucoid degeneration.
MCL is not the prob!: Mucoid degeneration of the MCL sounds like a incorrect radiologic diagnosis that is often seen on radiology MRI reports. MCL sprain is overdiagnosed on most MRIs. If you have a locking knee it may be chondral surface damage or meniscus problems. See an orthopedist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
