An ankle sprain is a fairly common injury that can vary in severity, but that almost always benefits from proper medical attention. At Synergy Foot and Ankle, we can assess the severity of your injury and set you on a course that sees you fully healed and recovered.
What Caused My Sprain?
Sprained ankles often result from a fall, a sudden twist, or a blow that forces the ankle joint out of its normal position. Ankle sprains commonly occur while participating in sports, wearing inappropriate shoes, or walking or running on an uneven surface.
Sometimes ankle sprains occur because of weak ankles, a condition that some people are born with. Previous ankle or foot injuries can also weaken the ankle and lead to sprains.
