Ankle Sprains

What should you do for ankle sprains?  Ankle sprains used to not be treated very aggressively, and over time we have realized they can lead to some significant problems.  We treat acute ankle sprains now with more inital immobilization followed by physical therapy and rehabilitation to try to prevent further injury. 

In some cases, people continue to have pain or instability leading to further injuries.  If you or a friend is experiencing this, don't delay treatment.  Early intervention can be crutial to preventing more longterm problems.  Call our Foot and Ankle Specialist today at 719-488-4664!
