Ankle sprains will typically leave the area swollen, with pain and a limited range of motion as well. If you believe you have a sprained ankle, please contact us today.
Ankle sprains will be diagnosed through a physical exam in order to assess the condition and range of motion of the ankle. In order to be properly diagnosed, you should visit a professional.
Treatment will be dependent on the severity of sprain. Typically, giving the ankle rest and ice will aid the healing process, but other instances may require pain medication and anti-inflammatory medication.
