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

Nerve problems

Repetitive strain

Arthritis

Ligament damage or rupture

Weakness

Overuse injuries

Your first appointment will need to be an Initial Consultation:
