Instability of the ankle after a severe ankle sprain could indicate the ligaments in the ankle have sustained long-term damage that may require ligament repair. Physical therapy and bracing or a period of immobilization may also be the best solution.
Has your foot progressively looked flatter? This may indicate a problem with the posterior tibial tendon that may be remedied with either bracing or a surgical procedure such as a tendon repair or tendon transfer.
A loud pop or snap at the outer portion of your foot after an inversion injury could indicate you sustained a Jones fracture of the 5th metatarsal bone. Some patients may be better candidates for surgical fixation of this problematic fracture.

Football: achilles rupture, syndesmosis injury, turf toe, lisfranc injury
