Are you having a lot of pain in your ankle that feels like much more than pulled or strained ligaments? If so, you should think about seeking help for professional broken ankle treatment and surgery in Lynnwood. This is where the staff at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic can come in very handy.
Once you come in for a physical examination, we will check to see any of the points of tenderness that you may have in your ankle and/or your foot. Sometimes, a patient with a broken ankle may have pain that extends from the ankle down into the bones in the foot. We will work to find the precise location of the pain and conduct a number of tests so that we can formulate the best plan for treatment.
A lot of the ankle and foot fractures that we see are easily visualized by way of x-ray. We will simply need to take the x-rays from several different ankles to make sure that we have a very clear picture of the injury that we are dealing with.
Depending on your specific injury, we may put together a combination of medications as well as therapy. After the bone is fully healed, it is usually suggested that you work with a physical therapist to help work on the stiff ligaments and muscles to give you full range of mobility once again.
