If you are in pain after twisting your ankle, rolling it or turning it in some awkward fashion, the chances are good that you have sprained it. This sort of action can actually stretch or even tear the ligaments, which are the bands of tough tissue found in your ankle that work to hold together the bones. Any sort of major injury to this area can be very painful and it will call for professional ankle sprain treatment in Arlington through Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic.
Treatment on any sprained ankle will usually depend a great deal on just how severe the injury actually is. Even though you may take the time to elevate your foot, take over the counter medications for pain and apply ice, there can be injuries to the ankle that will require treatment with a professional. This is going to be the best way for you to make sure that you are able to recover fully and get on a path for feeling better and enjoying your regular daily activities.
Walking on a sprained ankle can be rather painful, so it might be necessary for you to utilize crutches until the discomfort subsides. We also may recommend that you wear a removable split to give you some added support to make sure that you do no further damage to your ankle.
