Sprained Ankle Treatment in Vancouver
A Sprained Ankle, also known as an ankle sprain, rolled ankle, ankle injury or ankle ligament injury, is a common medical condition where one or more of the ligaments of the ankle is torn or partially torn. The anterior talofibular ligament is one of the most commonly involved ligaments. A lateral ankle sprain occurs when the ankle is inverted beyond the elastic limits of its supporting structures causing acute ankle pathology.
"Ankle sprains are often chronic with repeat episodes over a short period of time. It is extremely important to control the inflammation around the sprained ankle before returning to activity. Ankle brace or taping may be necessary to provide support" - Dr. Michael Horowitz
