The doctors in our podiatry office treat an ankle injury in Winston many of these injuries are due to participation in athletics, dancing or a similar activity that is stressful to the feet. An injury ankle occurs when the ankle ligaments are stretched beyond their normal range of motion usually from a sudden twisting. There are three types of ankle sprains depending on the direction of the twisting towards the inside or outside of the foot. Ankle sprains can be mild, moderate or severe. Our doctor treats ankle sprains through rest, wrapping the ankle in a bandage, and elevating the foot. If there is ankle instability in a severe sprain our doctors will use a brace or a walking boot to support the ankle. Our doctors can also use custom orthotics such as Ritchie brace to stabilize and support the ankle and foot.
Some injuries result in a fracture of one of the many bones in the foot or ankle. For instance, our doctor often sees stress fractures in those patients engaging physical activities. These are tiny fractures that can appear anywhere in the foot. If left untreated the stress fracture can turn into a full-fledged break. Pain, swelling, redness and bruising are signs of a stress fracture. Treatments for stress fractures vary with the degree of severity and location of the fracture. Rest. Immobilization and sometimes surgery are used to immobilize the fracture.
