The ankles bear the weight of your body, and determine how well you move, how well you feel, and how well you live.
Whether you’ve suffered a twist, sprain or other acute injury – or have lingering, chronic pain, it’s important to take proper care of any ankle injury. We treat all types of ankle injuries, with the goal of healing you as quickly and completely as possible, getting you back to what it is you love to do, and educating you about how to keep your joints safe to avoid injuries down the road.
When to Seek Ankle Pain Treatment:
The first 72 hours after an injury are the most important. Seek treatment as soon as possible.
Even more important than treating ankle pain as soon as possible, it’s critical to treat it correctly. A physiotherapist is an expert in assessing and diagnosing your ankle injury and will establish what your problem is, and how best to treat it. We will refer you to a doctor if your injury requires it, particularly in severe injuries that require medical imaging.
