Ankle injuries are very common in a lot of athletes these days. Ankle sprains occur as a result of the ligaments within the ankle being “overstretched” from either an inversion or eversion sprain. These two words basically tell the doctor which way the ankle has twisted.
Different ankle sprains require different treatments to a degree. Since ligaments hold bones together, if a ligament has become overstretched it has now lost its ability to stabilize the joint thus allowing the muscles and surrounding tissue to go into spasm, causing pain. Other ankle/foot problems we effectively treat include but are not limited to;
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Heel spurs
- Calf spasms
- Shin splints
- Achilles pain
Being properly examined and educated is what we strive for in our practice. You will leave here with the knowledge you need to help you get better and prevent this from occurring again in the future. The doctors will explain to you what is wrong as well as what they are going to fix it. You will not leave here unsure of what your diagnosis is.
