From ACL tears to minor ankle sprains, a good treatment program will make the difference between a speedy and successful recovery, and a chronic, nagging problem. If you’ve injured yourself and worry about making a full recovery, then Central Florida Foot and Ankle Center can help, especially if you’ve sustained a Winter Haven ankle sprain. Our podiatrists provide a full range of services for treating ankle pain and foot injuries, including conservative and surgical treatments. This includes the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of all types of foot conditions.
Foot and ankle pain can be caused by many different things. Ankle sprains, for example, are unnatural twisting or force on the ankle bones of the foot, often resulting in one or more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to be stretched or torn. Once an ankle is sprained, the injury may take a few weeks to many months to fully heal. Often, the injured ankle remains a little weaker and less stable than the uninjured one. However, a proper recovery program can prevent this problem. At home care may be all that’s needed, however, if you do have significant symptoms following a Winter Haven ankle sprain, you should seek medical attention from our podiatrist. Signs that should raise concern are the inability to walk on the ankle, significant swelling, symptoms that do not improve quickly or persist beyond a few days, or pain in the foot or above the ankle. As expert podiatrists, we take great pride in our ability to restore proper function to an injured or sprained ankle.
We will provide individualized, comprehensive evaluation and treatment of patients with ankle injuries.
