Sports Injuries to ankle

Sporting and injuries come hand-in-hand. Whether it is football, tennis, golf or running, the risk of injury is increased compared to sitting on the sofa, despite having precautions. Around the ankle, the most common injury is the (lateral) ligament complex on the outside of the joint but tendons and the ankle joint itself can be injured as well. In order to prevent these injuries, the correct footwear and correct biomechanics of the ankle and the whole lower limb are crucial. Especially sporty people are keen to regain full strength and function as soon as possible after an injury hence appropriate diagnosis and treatment with the help of imaging will help to be back on the pitch.

Treatment for Sports Injuries to ankle

Depending on the severity of the injury and the time elapsed since the trauma treatment may vary significantly. It is crucial to diagnose the problem promptly to start the correct treatment immediately. Imaging is paramount and working closely with expert musculoskeletal radiologist will guarantee successful recovery. Certain injuries may need operative treatment which can be arranged timely but most sports injuries will heel with the input of good physiotherapy and some protection around the ankle for a limited amount of time.

Whichever treatment needed, we will always focus on speedy recovery to regain full function of the ankle and foot.
