The spectrum of injury to the tarsometatarsal joints ranges from a mild sprain to frank dislocation. Dislocation of the tarsometatarsal joints is recognized as a significant injury, but lesser degrees of injury are often overlooked. Nonetheless, these “milder” injuries are often associated with prolonged symptoms and disability in the athlete.
