Anyone can tell you that having any sort of pain in your ankle, or even both of your ankles, will not be a pleasurable experience. There are a lot of people who actually deal with chronic ankle discomfort on a daily basis that may be able to benefit from a customized treatment plan. If you have been noticing that you could use guidance on ankle problems and treatments in Mountlake Terrace, our team of professionals at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will be happy to help.
From the moment that you arrive at our offices, we will be able to talk with you about whatever issue that you are having with your ankle. Is the pain mild or severe? Have you gone through some sort of injury or trauma? Does it seem as though icing the area or taking anti-inflammatory medication helps to bring the swelling down? Regardless of the cause for your ankle pain, we will be able to work with you to do a full evaluation so that proper treatment can get started right away.
A sprain is going to be best treated with a period of both rest and immobilization. If you happen to have a great deal of swelling, we may prescribe a powerful anti-inflammatory medication to help get the swelling down and decrease the amount of discomfort that you are feeling. If it seems as though your injury is not getting any better and the ankle problem persists, you may be looking at more involved treatments such as injections or surgery.
