Ankle Sprain Help In Redding

Are you experiencing any of the following symptoms?

  • Immediate pain in the ankle after activity/impact
  • Swelling of the ankle
  • Ankle tenderness
  • Ankle bruising
  • Feeling “wobbly” or weak when trying to stand on the injured ankle

Most ankle sprains occur during activities like football, soccer, or even while just walking. A rapid shift in movement causes the ankle to roll outward while the foot is pointed inward. The result is stretched and torn ligaments. An ankle doctor can assess the injured ankle and prescribe a protocol to expedite healing. An ankle specialist can also rule out other possibilities for the pain, such as a broken bone.
