While many NFL fans between Bowie and Annapolis may have spent their Monday licking their wounds following the devastating Bronco’s loss to the Seahawk’s overwhelming force at the XLVIII Super Bowl, not everybody from the Seahawk’s camp is in full celebration. Seattle Seahawk’s All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman, who was a major force behind the defense that stopped the 49’ers in the NFC Championship, and who was also implicit in the complete dismantling of Peyton Manning’s offensive maneuvers with the Denver Broncos Sunday night, suffered two clear ankle sprains during Sunday’s game; the second of which took him out of the fourth quarter with 11:28 left on the clock.

While Sherman was eventually able to celebrate the victory with his teammates (on the sidelines and in a walking boot with crutches), his injury was a clear reminder of the susceptibility of the human foot to damage, even in trained professionals.  Ankle sprains are unfortunately all too common, infamously causing significant pain, discomfort, and limited mobility during the months they may take to properly heal.

In Maryland, winter weather presents an even greater danger for sprains as ice and slick surfaces cause many unsuspecting victims to join Sherman’s crutch-wearing ‘Legion of Boom’ every snow season.  If an overzealous touchdown celebration or a treacherous ice patch has put one of your ankles in pain, don’t wait, we can help.  Schedule an appointment with Crofton Podiatry today.  Our office is conveniently located in Crofton between Bowie and Annapolis, so we can get your recovery started and put you back on your feet and back in the game as soon as possible.
