Ankle Pain & Instabilty Treatment
Ankle Instabilty Treatment
Lateral ankle instability is a condition where there is recurring giving way of the lateral side of the ankle joint. This condition typically develops after repeated ankle sprains. Symptoms include repeated turning of the ankle, persistent discomfort and swelling, pain/tenderness, and the ankle subjectively feeling wobbly or unstable. Non-surgical treatment includes activity modification, shoe modification, bracing/orthotics, anti-inflammatories. Surgical management is reserved for cases that do not respond to conservative measures and involves reconstruction of the lateral ankle ligaments.
