Ankle Sprains

Twisting an ankle is a common problem that can lead to chronic ankle problems down the road. The structures that surround the ankle have nerve fibers that help our muscles function properly.

When you twist an ankle to the point of a sprain, the nerve fibers need to be rehabilitated while they heal to regain their proper function. Otherwise they will scar, reducing their ability to function, which can lead to more injuries in the future.

Ankle sprains can be especially troublesome for people with osteopenia, poor circulation, arthritis and neuropathies.

How Footwear Can Help

Shoes that provide stability and a foot orthosis to restrict excessive motion are good long-term therapy options for ankle sprains.

If you twist your ankle badly enough that you experience bruising, swelling or weight-bearing pain, seek professional attention and find the proper rehabilitation techniques. A podiatrist can also help fit your shoes and select the appropriate inserts.
