HANDLING TREATMENT FOR SPRAINED ANKLES
Ankle sprains are caused by an unnatural twisting or force on the ankle bones of the foot, often resulting in one or more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to be stretched or torn. If not properly treated, ankle sprains can develop into long-term problems.
At Ankle and Foot Centers of Western New York, we will be able to treat your ankle sprain and ensure that the ankle heals properly over the course of time. From the initial X-rays to the completion of therapy, we will make sure you are getting the very best treatment that will have your ankle healthy for years to come.
In many cases, we can get your ankle back to full health without the use of surgery. With a plan that includes rest, ice, compression, physical therapy and certain medication, we will help reduce pain and inflammation and have your ankle back to a pain-free state.
Should surgery be required, we will repair damaged ligaments and give you a strict rehabilitation program to get you back to full health.
