The Awful, Annoying Ankle Injury

Ready for your scary statistic of the day? According to WebMD, “every day in the U.S., 25,000 people sprain their ankle. And more than 1 million people visit emergency rooms each year because of ankle injuries.”

Ankle sprains occur when a sudden twist, stretch, or blow to the body forces a joint out of its normal position, stretching and tearing the tough, fibrous ligaments that connect your bones. All it takes is a foot going out from under you, an unseen hole in the ground or even just a bad step. The result? Swelling, pain and a loss of your usual physical activity.

Whether at home or with a specialist, some treatments can take weeks and get surprisingly expensive. At Active Health, our goal is to help you get back to full functionality – fast! Many of our patients report seeing a 50 percent improvement after just one visit and an 80 percent improvement within three or four visits.

How do we do it?

Unlike many traditional methodologies that only treat symptoms of pain, we address the root cause. Even if your ankle injury was a freak accident, our treatment methods identify biomechanical dysfunctions and muscular imbalances. Then we use unique and aggressive forms of treatment to solve those issues.

What’s the best way to treat ankle injuries? Don’t get them in the first place! Our Sports Injury Prevention Program (SIPP) was designed to address all major areas of sport, including: running, jumping, cutting, balance and reaction time. We use cutting-edge digital technology to create a program tailored specifically for you, including proper warm-up techniques and movement patterns. Click here to learn more about SIPP.
