Looking for a Specialist Ankle Surgeon?

While it may seem like ankle injuries are typically minor, they can be debilitating and lead to long-term complications. Ankle sprains often occur when the foot is twisted or turned in a way that causes ligaments to stretch beyond their normal range of motion. This type of injury usually occurs during sports activities such as basketball, soccer, football, volleyball, tennis, running, jumping, etc. The most common symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising, stiffness, loss of function, and/or instability. If left untreated, an injured ankle could result in chronic problems including arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis, stress fractures, muscle tears, bone spurs, and even nerve damage.

 

Care First Orthopaedic doctors can help determine the cause of your problem and recommend treatment options that are right for you.
