Every day, 25,000 people sprain their ankles. You may remember spraining your ankle as a child while playing ball or unexpectedly stepping on an uneven surface. Athletes face the potential of sprained ankles every time they jump a hurdle, run a race, or step onto a court. Whatever the cause of your sprained ankle, our experienced ankle doctor in Manhattan for sprained ankles, Dr. Nick, can help make sure your ankle heals correctly to avoid future complications.
If you get a twisting feeling in your ankle, but the pain fades away quickly and you can go on with what you were doing without feeling more pain, your ankle may have a mild sprain. However, a more severe sprain may cause your ankles to swell, making it far too painful to stand. Sometimes with a bad sprain, you may even feel a “pop” when you get injured.
When one or more ligaments on the outer side of your ankle have become torn or stretched, ankle sprains happen. If you have pain along the inner side of your ankle, always seek the advice of an ankle doctor in Manhattan, NY, for sprained ankles sooner rather than later. Your pain may indicate a very serious injury to the tendons or to the ligaments that support your foot arch.
Foot and ankle expert Dr. Nick uses advanced digital x-ray technology to tell whether you have a sprain or whether you have broken a bone in your ankle. If you cannot bear weight after an injury or if your foot swells or looks deformed, call Silverstone Podiatry right away at 646.657.0070. We will prioritize your care with a same-day or next-day appointment.
