A sprained ankle is an elongation or a tearing of the ligaments which generally occurs after a fall or a false move. It is a common injury characterized by a sharp pain, a swollen ankle and sometimes, a hematoma.
If you suffer from sprained ankle, immediately :
See a health professional as soon as possible to confirm the diagnosis and initiate a rehabilitation process.
According to the severity level of the sprain (elongation, partial tear or complete rupture of the ligament), the healing period can last between one and six months .
Although it is common, never underestimate this injury. A sprained ankle which is badly treated leads to important risks of recurrence. Your podiatrist can help you to properly and completely heal the sprain in order to avoid chronic instability. You will then be able to resume an active lifestyle !
