Ankle Sprains Treatment in Beachwood, Mayfield Heights, Mentor & Tallmadge, OH

One of the most common causes of pain felt in the ankle region is a sprain. When ligaments in the ankle are torn or overstretched, an ankle sprain is likely to occur. There are three types of sprains that may develop: mild, moderate, and severe. In the case of a mild ankle sprain, the ankle is stable. The ligaments, however, are stretched. A moderate sprain consists of one or more ligaments being partially torn, and there’s limited movement. Severe ankle sprains include one or more torn ligaments, the ankle being unstable, and an inability to move the foot.

Ankle Sprains Causes and Prevention

The simple act of walking can sometimes cause a sprain, which makes them a very common injury for anyone. They occur when the ankle twists in an awkward way or rolls over itself, causing a pop or snap in the tendons around the ankle. Some people are more at risk than others, including athletes who continually push their bodies to the limits and also people who have previously suffered accidents to the feet, ankles, or lower legs.

Ankle sprains are a common occurrence for those who are particularly active in sports. Volleyball, basketball, and soccer are just a few of the types of sports that are prone to producing ankle injuries, including ankle sprains. Many athletes have found that compressing the ankle by wrapping it in bandages is an effective method for helping to prevent injury. Exercising using a balance board has also been found useful for strengthening the ankle and increasing its stability.

If you’re experiencing ankle pain and believe you might have a sprain, it’s highly recommended that you consult with a podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and advised treatment plan.
