Twisting your ankle or stepping just right and causing a sprain will call for professional ankle sprain treatment in Seattle with Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic.
Even if you feel as though you can simply treat your injury on your own, you should know that improperly cared for sprains can lead to lifelong damage of the ankle itself. The pulling or overstretching of the ligaments, which are the tough bands that help to hold your ankle bones together, can be difficult to heal if you do not stay off of it and go through the right steps.
Some of the common symptoms that you will experience when you have a sprained ankle include swelling and inflammation, hot feeling to the touch, pain in the area and sometimes there will be an inability to stand or walk. No matter what your symptoms might be, the evaluation will be pretty much the same. If we feel as though you may have a more serious injury or there is some excruciating pain, it will be necessary to take an x-ray to rule out any major damage that should be addressed.
