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
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

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
Knee injury while dancing. Heard pop tearing sensation. Unstable knee x3 weeks medial swelling swelling down into foot. Dx?
Joint instability at hip and knee, weakness from hip to outer thigh to outer knee. Pain lifting leg - climbing stairs and kicking leg backwards. Why?
No: the popping is from something else.Get a more detailed answer ›
Probably none: A stability shoe is one that is made very rigid in the mid-sole area mainly in theory to reduce foot pronation (flattening of the arch). I do not see where this can injure a person with a high arched (supinated) foot structure. High arched individuals ususally have issues with shock absorption and may benefit with otc arch supports or custom orthotics to better distribute stress across the feet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
