Do you struggle with weak ankles, or do you often feel as though your ankle is about to “give way” when walking on uneven ground or in high heeled shoes? If so, then you may be suffering from chronic ankle instability. At Silverstone Podiatry, we can help you restore strength and stability to your ankles. Regain your confident walk with our New York City ankle doctor!
The most common cause of ankle instability is an ankle sprain that wasn’t allowed to heal properly. When you sprain your ankle, your ligaments can be stretched or even torn. When those ligaments don’t get repaired, the result is an ankle that struggles to support your weight. If you have suffered multiple sprains over a period of time, this can exacerbate your condition even further.
While Dr. Nick is a highly trained surgical specialist for ankle correction, he believes strongly that surgery should always be a last resort after more conservative treatments have been tried. In the case of ankle instability, there are a number of nonsurgical methods that Dr. Nick may first recommend, including ankle wraps, anti-inflammatory medications, or an ankle brace. If you do end up needed surgery for a torn ligament or excessively damaged ligament, then you can rest easy knowing you’re in the hands of one of the best ankle surgeons in New York City.
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.
