<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Ligaments are strong tissues around joints which attach bones together. They give support to joints. A ligament can be injured, usually by being stretched during a sudden pull. The ligaments at the side of the ankle are the ones most commonly sprained.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Ankle sprains are very common injuries. There’s a good chance that you sprained your ankle when you were playing as a child, or even when you stepped on an uneven surface as an adult.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>A damaged ligament causes inflammation, swelling, and bleeding (bruising) around the affected joint. Movement of the ankle joint is painful when you have a sprained ankle.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>A sprained ankle means one or more ligaments on the outer side of your ankle was stretched or torn. If a sprain is not treated properly, you could develop long-term problems.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>__cout____squarer__comapnyname__squarel____cout__’s podiatrist will give you a perfect solution for your sprained ankle.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Our main aim of treatment is to keep inflammation, swelling, and pain to a minimum, and to ensure that you can use the ankle joint normally again as quickly as possible.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>To diagnose a sprained ankle, our doctor will review how the injury occurred and consider your symptoms. He or she will examine your ankle carefully. X-rays may be taken of your ankle.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Our podiatry clinic provides comprehensive diagnostic, surgical and rehabilitative services for foot and ankle conditions, from the most common to the most complex. These include but are not limited to the following conditions below:</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Strains & Sprains</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Fractures</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Tendonitis</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Shin Splints</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Stress Fractures</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Heel spurs</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Plantar fasciitis</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Our treatment includes resting and elevating the ankle, and applying ice to reduce swelling. Compressive bandages also may be used to immobilize and support the injury during healing. Serious ankle sprains, particularly among competitive athletes, may require surgery to repair and tighten the damaged ligaments.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Ankle sprains are graded according to the damage to the ligaments. The more ligaments involved, the more severe the injury.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Grade 1</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>  Some minor tearing of ligament tissue</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>  Ankle remains stable</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Grade 2</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>  Partial tearing of ligament tissue</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>  Mild instability of the joint</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>  Usually involves damage to 2 ankle ligaments</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Grade 3</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>  Complete tearing of 2 or 3 of the ligaments</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>  Significant instability of the joint</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Most sprains heal well. Treatment for a sprained ankle may include:</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation)</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Oral pain medicine, creams and patches that are applied to the skin</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Rehabilitation exercises</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>* Brace</p>
