Effective Treatment for Your Ankle Health
Too often, we see patients who have had their ankle sprains treated by another foot doctor but are still in pain. Unfortunately, ineffective and costly treatments can sometimes make a condition worse or cause problems that are not always reversible.
When your injured ankle isn’t treated properly and in a timely manner, it can heal itself in a way that may cause instability, limited mobility, and increase your likelihood of future sprained ankles.
Timing is everything when treating a sprained ankle injury, so the sooner you see our podiatrist in Wauwatosa, WI, the sooner you can get back to your life and do what you love.
What Are the Symptoms of a Sprained Ankle?
At times, you might get a twisting feeling in your ankles, but the pain fades away quickly and you can continue what you were doing without additional pain. However, a more severe sprain may cause your ankles to swell, making it far too painful to stand. Sometimes with a bad sprain, you may even feel a “pop” when you get injured.
When Should You Seek Treatment for a Sprained Ankle?
Ankle sprains happen when one or more ligaments on the outer side of your ankle have become torn or stretched. If you have pain along the inner side of your ankle, always seek the advice of a podiatrist, as this may indicate a serious injury to the tendons or to the ligaments that support your foot arch.
Dr. Milkie uses advanced digital x-ray technology to tell whether you have a sprain or whether you have broken a bone in your ankle. If you cannot bear weight after an injury or if your foot swells or looks deformed, call us right away. We will prioritize your care with a same-day or next-day appointment.
