Do you have an ankle sprain in Denver? Read this article today.
An ankle sprain is a common injury and usually results when the ankle is twisted, or turned in (inverted). The term sprain signifies injury to the soft tissues, usually the ligaments, of the ankle.
If your ankle gets swollen and painful after you twist it, you have most likely sprained it. A more serious sprain might include bruising and tenderness around the ankle, and walking is painful.
Even though ankle sprains are common, they are not always minor injuries. Some people with repeated or severe sprains can develop long-term joint pain and weakness.
Chiropractic treatments for a sprained ankle can help prevent ongoing ankle problems.
The most important thing to do if you sprain an ankle is to put it in an ice bath.
If you chronically sprain your ankles, we recommend rehab. Standing on a wobble board for several minutes each day can also improve the condition.
