It’s a fact that some people struggle with weak ankles or feel like their ankle is about to “give way” when they walk on uneven ground or in high-heeled shoes. If this pertains to you, you may be suffering from chronic ankle instability. At Silverstone Podiatry, our Lenox Hill ankle doctor for ankle instability treatment can help regain your ankle’s strength and stability, so you can walk confidently and steadily again.
An ankle sprain that doesn’t heal properly can lead to ankle instability. When you sprain your ankle, your ligaments can be stretched or even torn, and when those ligaments don’t heal, the result is an ankle that copes to support your weight. If you have had multiple sprains over a period of time, this can intensify your condition even further.
Our exceptionally-trained surgical specialist for ankle correction, Dr. Nick, strongly believes conservative treatments should be tried first before surgery. With ankle instability, there are a number of nonsurgical methods that he may recommend first, including ankle wraps, anti-inflammatory medications, or an ankle brace. However, if you do need surgery for a torn ligament or excessively damaged ligament, rest easy – you’re in the hands of one of the best ankle surgeons in Lenox Hill!
Ultimately, the best way to know the right treatment for your weak ankle is to visit Silverstone Podiatry, where Dr. Nick can evaluate the extent of the damage to your ligaments.
