Why do I keep twisting my ankle?
IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION
Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.
For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.
Each time you suffer a sprained ankle, ligaments that stabilize your ankle are injured and are at least partially torn. Ligaments do heal, but if not treated soon after the injury they will heal in a "stretched" position that doesn't allow for as much support on the outside of the ankle. This can lead to a more habitual twisting. To avoid this, visit your Houston podiatrist Dr. Andrew Schneider immediately after an ankle sprain to address the injury and prevent continues problems.
