Foot and ankle injuries are commonplace among all athletes, weekend warriors and high-performance athletes alike, but diabetic athletes are at a significantly greater risk to sustain stress fractures, sprains and other foot and ankle injuries than nondiabetic athletes, according to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS).
According to ACFAS spokesperson John M. Giurini, DPM, FACFAS, a Boston foot and ankle surgeon, a key reason diabetic athletes are more susceptible to foot injuries is that many diabetics have neuropathy, the diminished sensation from nerve damage in the foot.
Diabetic foot problems can include poor circulation coupled with a compromised immune system that increases the risk of infection and the restricted delivery of oxygen and other nutrients to the affected area.
