Ankle Sprain

90% of all ankle sprains occur on the outside part of the ankle, while only 10% occur on the inside. These sprains are characterized by swelling and inflammation with occasional discolorization to the affected areas.

Doctor's Treatment Plan
Treatment consists of reducing any swelling in the affected area, which is followed by a series of stretching exercises designed to rehabilitate muscles and increase strength in order to avoid future injuries.

The treatment is much like that above: the individual patient needs to be evaluated. In the case of chronic ankle sprains it is very important that the patient be treated, in order to restore proprioception (sense of balance) and prevent future injuries.

  Note: It should always be considered that not all injuries are spinal related, and therefore not all injuries can be fully corrected with the benefit of chiropractic medicine. Further, the injury profiles and recommendations for treatment should in no way be used as a substitute for the care of a physician.
