A sprained ankle is a very serious injury that most people do not take seriously enough. If you sprain your ankle, the stability is greatly decreased, increasing the possibility that you could do it again. If you think you have sprained your ankle, you should call a podiatrist. They will check to make sure it’s not broken and get you on the path back to normal activity. In the meantime, elevate your injured foot, apply ice and take an anti-inflammatory if there is swelling. Don’t write off an ankle injury as no big deal. If not treated properly it can easily be re-injured. Call us today at 713-785-7881 for more information or to make an appointment.
