What causes pain at the back of the foot after a game of soccer?

Last Monday I had soccer practice, everything was going great but after practice I realize there was pain at the back of my foot, it s was like I couldn t put pressure on the back. But the next day it gotten better. I did some research on my own online and found out it s probably the peroneal tendon. I don t think I tore it since there s pretty much no more pain but I still question if I can play soccer, please give me some more facts. Thank you

Hi,
Thanks for writing to HCM.
Pain in the back of the foot after a game of soccer could be due to ligament or tendon injury. It could be only a sprain in the ligament or tendon and you need to give adequate rest along with medications for the injury to heal.
You can take Tablet.Diclofenac with Paracetamol and Chloroxazone combination twice a day after foot for 5 days. Along with that take Tablet. Serratipopeptidase thrice a day after food for 3 days.
Apply ice pack and Tropical anagesic gel on the affected area.
You must give minimum of 1 week to 10 days rest to play again. Take care not to strain yourself again as the injury takes about 3 week for complete healing.
Keep yourself well hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids.
Hope the information provided will be useful.
All the best.
