Suffered a Broken Ankle or Fracture?
One of the most common reasons we get patients in to see us is for sprained, fractured, or broken ankles. Your ankles absorb a lot of force while you are walking or running and if your ankle is somehow injured, it can be extremely painful to even walk on it. Whether you have fallen and broken your ankle or poorly fitting shoes led to your ankle being twisted in an unnatural way, we can help treat your ailment. In addition to treating your injury, we can educate you on the precautions you can take to prevent injuries in the future.
Restoring Function to Your Feet & Ankles
Suffering a foot or ankle injury can be one of the most immobilizing injuries, as even a minor wound can temporary disable you. It is extremely important that you do not try to push yourself to walk or move on what might be a fractured or broken ankle, as it can worsen your injury and lead to extended recovery time.
