Chronic Ankle Instability

Chronic Ankle Instability

Because of its function, the ankle is susceptible to injuries such as sprains, strains and fractures. Often times, the injury has not properly healed or was not rehabbed completely. Thus, the ligaments may still be stretched out and loose. The resulting problem is chronic ankle instability. It is described as a constant collapsing of the ankle. Our orthopedic ankle surgeon will deliver a detailed examination to determine the level of the instability.

Symptoms of Ankle Instability

Individuals with chronic ankle instability seem to injure their ankle more often than others. More often than not, the majority of patients visiting our orthopedic ankle surgeon are there because of chronic ankle instability. Symptoms of this ankle problem tend to be:

  • A sense that the ankle easily “gives out”
  • Difficulty walking on uneven surfaces
  • Constantly rolling the ankle
  • Recurring ankle stiffness at the end of the day

Ankle Instability Treatments

Our orthopedic ankle surgeon will need to give you a thorough examination of your condition. Treatments are based on the results of the ankle examination. Non-surgical options are considered first. Proper rehabilitation is critical to successful non-surgical treatments of an ankle injury. If these conservative treatments do not work, then surgery may be required. Surgery generally comprises of repairing or replacing the damaged ligaments. Our orthopedic ankle surgeon will determine the appropriate surgical option based on the severity of your ankle instability.
