Do you have a “bad ankle?” Maybe you injured it in the past, and it still feels painful or just wobbly and weak. Chronic ankle instability can be a nuisance. Do you feel like the only shoes you can walk in are high topped boots? Then it may be time to set up an appointment to see us. Here at Milwaukee Foot and Ankle specialists we will take time to check your ankles and see what is causing you too feel unstable on your feet. A common cause of your balance loss may be chronic ankle instability.

Chronic ankle instability can be caused by a variety of pathologies. Issues arising from an old ankle injury that may have never healed correctly, overuse, or congenital issues may be to blame The cause of instability may be ligamentous, muscular, osseous (in the bone), or even neurologic. Examination by one of our specialists will help to diagnose, and address the cause of the problem.

There are many options to the treatment of chronic ankle instability. Of course there are surgical options (a conversation for another time) but another great treatment option is the use of a custom made AFO. An AFO or Ankle Foot Orthosis, is a custom made orthotic that runs from along the bottom of the foot to up across the ankle.

The orthotic is made custom to your foot by making a cast of the foot, or taking a scan which can help send information about your foot to a lab. The orthotic then is made specific to your foot and ankle to help support you while you move, providing stability and comfort to your feet and ankles. If ankle pain is taking its toll on your day to day life, this, and many other conservative and surgical treatment options may be available to you. Set up an appointment today to see what we can do to give you back your happy feet!
