Vigorous blocking near the net, a fast attacking shot, or precise passing: when you are playing volleyball, your ankles are involved in every single move. The ankles carry your entire body weight, and they act as shock absorbers when you are landing after an attacking stroke or a blocking attempt. The ankle also stabilizes your foot and protect it against sprains when you are running short distances or during quick changes of direction. High speeds over short distances, frequent jumps and landings may lead to forces that correspond to several times your body weight. This is why sprains and torn ligaments in the area of the ankle are among the most common injuries during volleyball. There are even cases of tendonitis and fatigue fractures.
