While ankle pain is often thought of as an injury occurring during a sporting event, it can also be the result of normal routines like walking on uneven surfaces and turning your ankle, jumping down and landing awkwardly or even normal wear and tear. It can also be the result of faulty footwear and unnatural jolt from high heels. Whatever the cause, ankle injuries can happen to anyone at any age. When you experience ankle pain from an ankle injury, it is important to see an orthopedic doctor at Advanced Spine & Orthopedics, where we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of ankle bones.
Ankle injuries are usually subjected to three areas: bones, ligaments and tendons. The bones are held together by the ligaments. And the tendons attach the muscle to the bone. Ankle pain is the resultant injury of any of these whether broken, strained, sprained or twisted beyond its level of strength.
Our orthopedic doctor treats a number of ankle injuries including:
If you think you have injured your ankle, then implement the R.I.C.E. method – rest the injured ankle, ice the injured ankle with 15 minute intervals, compress the injured ankle being sure it is not too tight, and elevate the injured ankle above your heart. Make sure you set up an appointment with our orthopedic doctor to properly evaluate the ankle injury.
