Are you constantly twisting your ankle? Does making a small misstep cause your ankle to roll and put you in extreme pain?! You may be suffering from chronic ankle instability. Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries and when not treated properly can lead to much bigger problems in the future. Early treatment will lead to a quicker recovery and minimize the chance of ongoing issues. If left untreated then It can lead to ankle instability, recurrent sprains, and arthritis.
An ankle sprain is a strain or tear of the ligaments that help stabilize the ankle joint. These injuries typically occur by landing the wrong way while jumping or running. If these injuries are severe enough it can lead to chronic ankle instability. This results in frequent ankle sprains, which can lead to much bigger problems.
