Do you have pain in your ankle?
ARE YOU SUFFERING WITH PAIN IN YOUR ANKLE?
Here at ZW Clinics we see ankle injuries on a daily basis. Whether it be from a traumatic inversion injury or sprain, overuse or a lifelong problem, we can help. Ankle injuries often include ligament damage, a fracture or in some cases, having received previous surgery. We often utilise Ultrasound scanning in most cases of ankle injury to ascertain the exact level of injury and associated structures involved. Ankle pain can be related to:
- Previous fracture.
- Tendon injuries.
- Ligament damage or rupture.
- Nerve problems.
- Repetitive strain.
- Overuse injuries.
It is important to ascertain the level of injury and treat any weakness or instability accordingly. Ankle pathologies are very common and our goal is to treat the problem and prevent it from causing any lasting issues or recurrent injury.
How can we treat it?
- Rehabilitation programmes.
- Activity/ training modification.
- Footwear modification.
- The Richie Brace in severe cases.
- Steroid injection therapy.
