Pickleball and Preventing Injuries

Are you tired of limping off the pickleball court with aching feet and ankles?

You’re not alone.

Pickleball is a fast-paced sport that requires quick lateral movements and repetitive motions. While it’s a blast to play, it can take a toll on your feet and ankles, leading to injuries like sprains and heel pain.

But what if I told you there’s a way to keep playing the sport you love without the constant foot and ankle pain?

It all starts with taking proper precautions. Warming up before you play and using proper technique can go a long way in reducing your risk of injury. And when it comes to footwear, don’t skimp. Invest in a good pair of shoes specifically designed for pickleball. And while you’re at it, upgrade your racket and balls too. For more information on good shoe gear, check out our youtube page. Remember to stay hydrated! Another precaution is to make sure you are strengthening the muscle groups you are using.

But let’s say the damage has already been done and you’re currently dealing with foot or ankle pain. Don’t let it keep you on the sidelines. Seek medical attention and take the necessary steps to rest and rehabilitate your injury properly.

And here’s the secret weapon for preventing future injuries, incorporate exercises that specifically target the foot and ankle muscles to strengthen them.

Pickleball seems like a blast to play, (I personally have never played) and it’s a shame to let something like foot or ankle pain hold you back from enjoying the game. By taking the proper precautions and following through with the proper treatment and rehabilitation, you can keep playing the sport you love, pain-free.
