Our experts can help you restore strength and stability to your ankles with our ankle instability treatment in Flagstaff, AZ, to get you back to walking confidently!
Causes Of Chronic Ankle Instability
An ankle sprain that wasn’t allowed to heal properly is the most common cause of ankle instability. When you sprain your ankle, your ligaments can be stretched or even torn. When those ligaments aren’t repaired, the result is an ankle that struggles to support your weight. If you have suffered multiple sprains over a period of time, this can exacerbate your condition even further.
Symptoms Of An Unstable Ankle
In addition to feeling that your ankle is about to give out, ankle instability can cause pain on the outside of your ankle, stiffness, and swelling. Weakened ligaments may also cause your ankle to bend or lean in one direction when you walk, and you may experience more small injuries when doing everyday activities.
Does Ankle Instability Require Surgery?
In certain cases, surgery may be necessary. However, our podiatrist will exhaust more conservative treatment options before recommending surgery. In the case of ankle instability, there are a number of nonsurgical methods that our doctor will first recommend, including ankle wraps, anti-inflammatory medications, or an ankle brace. If you do end up needing surgery for a torn ligament or excessively damaged ligament, then you can rest easy knowing you’re in the hands of a highly-skilled podiatrist.
