Ankle Injuries

Ankle-InjuriesAnkle injuries are extremely common. Sprains, in which the ligaments supporting the ankle are partially or completely torn, are the most common type of ankle injury. Most of these can be managed with immobilization and physical therapy. Tendonitis is a chronic condition in which the tendon becomes inflamed. This happens over a period of weeks to months. Treatment depends on the extent of the inflammatory changes within the tendon and duration of symptoms.
