Regain Strength and Stability with Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Ankle sprains are common but can vary greatly in severity. Understanding the importance of appropriate care is key to a full recovery. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we specialize in treating ankle sprains, ensuring that you receive the best care to return to your activities safely and confidently.

Understanding Ankle Sprains

An ankle sprain occurs when the ligaments that support the ankle stretch beyond their limits and tear. These injuries are often the result of a fall, a sudden twist, or a blow that forces the ankle joint out of its normal position.

Symptoms of Ankle Sprains

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Tender to the touch
  • Pain, especially when putting weight on the affected foot
  • Limited range of motion
  • Instability in the ankle

Our Approach to Ankle Sprain Treatment

We tailor our treatment plans based on the severity of the sprain:

  • RICE Protocol: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation to reduce swelling and pain.
  • Physical Therapy: Strengthening exercises and balance training to restore ankle function.
  • Bracing or Taping: To provide support during the healing process.
  • Medication: Anti-inflammatory drugs to manage pain and swelling.

Advanced Treatment Options

For more severe sprains or those not responding to conservative treatment, we offer:

  • Custom Orthotics: To support the ankle and improve biomechanics.
  • Joint Mobilization: Hands-on therapy to improve movement and reduce pain.
  • Surgical Intervention: Rarely necessary, but available for cases where the ligaments do not heal properly.
