Ankle Sprain Treatment
A twist of the foot or a fall can stretch or tear ligaments in the ankle, causing a sprain. If one or more ligament is torn, it can be badly sprained and cause extreme ankle pain and swelling. While a twisted ankle is common and can heal with a little rest, a severely sprained ankle may require rehabilitation to restore strength and stability. At Allied Pain & Spine Institute, we can help our patients with sprained ankles get the treatment they need to recover from their injury.
When ligaments are stretched or torn, the ankle is no longer secure. Not only may it be painful to put weight on your foot, you can further injure your ankle if proper rehabilitation is not performed. Often, it is a lack of strength in these muscles and tendons that causes the initial injury. Strengthening through physical therapy can help with recovery from the injury, and help prevent future injuries by stabilizing the muscles and tendons in the ankle.
