ANKLE SPRAINS

ANKLE SPRAINS

Recently twisted your ankle? Recent fall or injury?  Ankle sprain should be immediately evaluated and treated by a podiatrist. Early diagnosis is important and an ankle sprain or injury  should not be left untreated, for reasons including:

1.Ankle fracture or foot fracture maybe associated with ankle injury, people mistaken ankle sprains for ankle fractures frequently. If an ankle fracture is sustained, must be treated conservatively with a boot, cast and possible crutches if required to be non-weightbearing or possible surgery if fracture is extensive.

  1. Ankle sprains not treated properly, can lead to chronic ankle instability, weakness when walking or running and can lead to frequent and multiple ankle sprains
  2. Early physical therapy is important to allow adequate healing of sprained ligaments
  3. Surgery to repair the ligaments if torn or ruptured, maybe warranted
