Seeking immediate medical attention if you have injured your ankle ligaments is important.
An estimated 2,000,000 ankle sprains occur in the United States each year. With the right care, most people can recover completely. If an ankle sprain is not treated correctly, it can cause impaired mobility and rapid-progressing arthritis that will last for years.
An athlete or someone who is physically active is at the greatest risk of injuring their ankles. However, anyone can get sprains. An easy slip or trip can cause ligament damage by twisting the foot. It often happens when the person steps instead of landing on their soles. The ligaments responsible for supporting bones and joints in the ankle are stretched beyond their normal range of motion by this misstep. It causes the ligament fibres to become damaged.
With their vast knowledge of anatomy and the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can determine the extent of an injury and recommend the best course to correct it.
How can chiropractic care help ankle pain?
Your fibula (lower leg bones) and tibia meet at your ankle. It creates a socket where your talus, or ankle bone, fits in. The socket rests on your calcaneus, which is your heel bone. Muscles and ligaments link these bones. An ankle injury can result in damage to bones, muscles and ligaments.
Initially, R.I.C.E was indicated for an ankle strain. However, newer models incorporate movement along with rest. It is important to do this carefully and under the supervision of a professional.
Chiropractic care can make all the difference. A chiropractor will assess the cause of the pain and use various diagnostic tools to determine the best treatment.
Extremity adjustment for injuries
Chiropractic adjustment can be a safe and effective way to accelerate recovery from an injury. It’s amazing to see severe swelling disappear in seconds after an ankle adjustment. Sometimes, after injury, the joints can become “stuck”. Once the restriction is removed, the patient will feel an immediate improvement in their pain and walking ability.
Once the inflammation has subsided, chiropractic adjustments can begin to be applied to strengthen, stabilize and mobilize your ankle. The focus is on restoring the full flexibility of the joint. Regular chiropractic adjustments can treat the joint and increase blood flow to the area, speeding up healing.
Your chiropractor will consider your whole body, offering suggestions for lifestyle and diet changes and creating a treatment plan that includes different chiropractic treatments.
