The Lisfranc injury that occurs during athletic activity is typically a different entity than the high-energy Lisfranc injury that occurs after major trauma; often, the radiographic findings are more subtle and patients tend to regain a higher level of function. The athletic Lisfranc injury is a relatively common injury in athletes with midfoot sprains, occurring in 4% of collegiate football players annually, 29% of whom are offensive linemen1. When unrecognized, Lisfranc injuries are classically associated with poor outcomes, which is why identification and proper treatment are critical.
