Effective Treatment for Proper Healing
You may remember spraining your ankle as a child while playing ball or unexpectedly stepping on an uneven surface. Athletes face the potential of sprained ankles every time they step on a ball field, jump a hurdle, or run a race. Whatever the cause of your sprained ankle, Dr. Wawrzynek, can help with effective treatment for sprained ankles in King of Prussia, PA, and the Wayne, PA, area to ensure that your ankle heals correctly to avoid future complications.
What Are the Symptoms of a Sprained Ankle?
At times, you might get a twisting feeling in your ankles, but the pain fades away quickly and you can continue what you were doing without additional pain. However, a more severe sprain may cause your ankles to swell, making it far too painful to stand. Sometimes with a bad sprain, you may even feel a “pop” when you get injured.
When Should You Seek Treatment for a Sprained Ankle?
Ankle sprains happen when one or more ligaments on the outer side of your ankle have become torn or stretched. If you have pain along the inner side of your ankle, always seek the advice of a podiatrist, as this may indicate a serious injury to the tendons or to the ligaments that support your foot arch.
Podiatrist Dr. Wawrzynek uses advanced digital x-ray technology to tell whether you have a sprain or a broken bone in your ankle. If you cannot bear weight after an injury or if your foot swells or looks deformed, call us right away. We will prioritize your care with a same-day or next-day appointment.
