Ankle Sprains

Ankle sprains are incredibly common and can occur in men and women of all ages. A sprain is caused when the ankle is twisted in a way that isn't natural. The ligaments of the ankle may be torn or stretched.

A physician may recommend treatment options for an ankle sprain ranging from home treatment to surgery. These treatments include:

  • Applying ice to the sprain
  • Compressive bandages
  • Immobilization and resting the ankle
  • Surgery to repair the ligaments

While most patients can recover completely from ankle sprains, it's important to seek treatment so that long-term complications don't develop.
