It’s no secret that Eli Manning hasn’t been playing his best in the last few seasons with the NY Giants. Coming off his worst season since his 2004 rookie year, with a career high in interceptions and a career-high 39 sacks, his quarterback rating of 69.4 has been the lowest since he was a rookie. Yet as if things couldn’t seem any worse – reports are streaming in that he underwent arthroscopic surgery last Thursday to clean out an ankle sprain that has been keeping him from being the top of his game.

Arthroscopy is a procedure where a small video camera is inserted into the ankle, to allow your surgeon to inside your joints underneath the tissue skin and tissue. It requires full anesthesia, but has been very successful in minimizing scar tissue, as it only uses three small holes instead of an open incision. It is a decision you will need to see a foot and ankle specialist for, if you’re in the area stop by my clinic in Crofton just outside of Gambrills, Maryland if you just can’t take the pain, or any longer. 

This almost sound reminiscent of Tiger Woods – who has recently stepped out of his chance for a green jacket in the 2014 Masters golf tournament due to chronic back pain. While Tiger has had his fair share of injuries with left Achilles problems in 2012, it’s his back that’s causing him trouble now. Although, this is only the first major injury for Manning, who has been unable to shake the after-effects of a high ankle sprain suffered in December of last year’s regular-season finale.

 “I went through the recovery and rehab after suffering the sprain,” Manning said. “I was still experiencing some discomfort as I began my normal offseason preparation, and after consultation, we felt the right thing was to have Dr. Anderson clean out the ankle.’’

While I suggest to all of my patients that we start with more conservative measures before resorting to surgery, we at Crofton Podiatry want to work with you to get the treatments you need to get you back on your feet and back to winning your own Green Jackets.
