Chronic Ankle Instability
Have you had a significant sprain of your ankle or are experiencing recurrent ankle sprains? You could be experiencing the side effects of chronic ankle instability. This is a condition that occurs after you have typically had repetitive ankle sprains. When your previous sprains have not healed appropriately, the ligaments remain weakened and damaged. This can cause further sprains and damage to occur.
Patients who have chronic instability may feel persistent pain, discomfort, swelling, trouble with uneven surfaces, instability or weakness in the ankle, and repetitive ankle sprains. A precise history and thorough clinical evaluation is extremely important during your visit.
Advanced imaging studies such as MRI may be recommended to assess the severity of your condition or whether any other damage is present. After, your specialist will be able to review your condition and present you with options to get you back on your feet.
