Something popped in my foot

Last Wednesday, while playing platform tennis (very similar to regular tennis) I felt something seemingly go POP across the top of my foot. It felt like a rubber band had let go on the inside of my right arch, and traveled over the top of the foot to the outside sole of the foot, about halfway between the heel and little toe.

There is no swelling or visible bruising, just a fair amount of pain in the arch and the outside of the foot, reduced by Advil.

I had been feeling some minor pain in the foot since September, when I started playing platform tennis again. I have been fairly active until this summer, when a move prevented me from my usual regime of running.

Thoughts on what this might be, and how to treat it? For now, I am planning on ceasing all sporting activity until the New Year to rest and heal.

Many thanks, Dr., and a happy Thanksgiving to you.
