What Can Be Done For Chronic Ankle Sprains And Instability?

Chronic ankle sprains and instability occur very commonly after a severe ankle injury.  With many athletes starting basketball season around this time of year, we see an increase in these types of injuries during the fall season.  When patients suffer an inversion ankle injury, they commonly tear the ligaments on the lateral side of the ankle that help keep it stable.  The ligaments will typically heal, but some of the time, they heal in a lengthened position that generally makes the ankle too loose and prone to further injuries.

Some patients also have other injuries that can be missed when they are initially diagnosed with an ankle sprain.  We commonly see cartliage damage in the ankle joint and peroneal tendon injuries associated with chronic ankle sprains.  If you have suffered from chronic ankle instabiliy or sprains, and strengthening and physical therapy exercises have not gotten you back to where you would like to be athletically, we can help!  Call our Colorado Springs foot and ankle surgeons, Dr. Hinderland and Dr. Cameron today at 719-488-4664, so we can help get you back to peak performance!
