Treating Ankle Sprains in Fort Lauderdale

Woman with ankle pain

Getting an ankle injury can have serious repercussion if not assessed. Typically an ankle sprain occurs when the ligaments, tendons, muscles, nerves or bones in the ankle are damaged. Our skilled chiropractor at Tartack Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, can assess your injury and determine the best treatment plan to heal your injury and get you back to recovery.

Common Causes of Ankle Sprains

The most common causes of ankle sprains are collapsed arches in the feet and a history of ankle sprains. Often, sprains happen when a person suddenly twists or rolls their ankle which can occur while playing sports that involve a lot of jumping or when an athlete over-trains their body. You are also more susceptible to ankle sprains if you have ill-fitting shoes or weak ankles.

Symptoms of ankle sprains may include swelling, bruising, and pain that is generally achy, tender. Others may experience the inability to put weight on their foot, weakness or instability, and a decreased range of motion.

How Our Ft. Lauderdale Chiropractor Can Treat Ankle Sprains

Chiropractic care is not limited to the back. Dr. Tartack has helped hundreds of patients effectively recover from their ankle injuries with the use of adjustments, exercises, orthotics and more. Physiotherapy, which includes ice, heat and muscle stimulation, can reduce the pain and swelling in the sprain. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign the 26 bones in the foot. Exercises, done both in-office and at home, are designed to treat ankle sprains by increasing the range of motion as well as strengthening and stabilizing the foot. Dr. Tartack may advise patients to consider foot orthotics, which can remedy fallen arches and prevent future sprains.
