Ankle & Foot
Many of our patients with chronic ankle instability complain of the ankle “giving way”, constant or permanent swelling, obvious pain, decreased range of motion or excessive motion from joint laxity, and recurring sprains.
Left untreated, ankle instability leads to cartilage deterioration with resultant degenerative arthritis. If a ligament does not heal, joint instability occurs and the end-result is arthritis with good prospects for fusion or ankle replacement surgery.
The most common type of ankle sprain is an inversion injury, turning the ankle inward, injuring or tearing the ligaments on the lateral side of the ankle, usually the anterior talofibular and the tibiofibular ligaments. The inside of the ankle is held together by a group of ligaments called the deltoid ligament. This ligament is injured from turning the foot outward, as can happen when falling down stairs or mis-stepping. Once an ankle is sprained, the injury may take a few weeks to many months to fully heal. The injured ankle often remains a little weaker and less stable than the uninjured one.
