Whether you are treating a bout of arthritis or calming the discomfort of a sprained ankle, using heat or cold to provide relief can be helpful. Knowing what to use and when is important for the best results. Here are some ideas to help make those painful conditions less discomforting.
Ankle Injury Treatment
Ankle injuries are very common and can occur at any age. A sprained ankle or other injury can happen during everyday activity or during competitive sports. Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians is exceptionally qualified to treat your ankle pain or ankle injury in Atlanta. We have a team of leading physicians, including those who are double board certified in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery. We understand the complex function and anatomy of the ankle joint and what it takes for patients to achieve a successful outcome after injury.
Your ankle bone and the ends of your two lower leg bones make up the ankle joint. You have delicate tendons and ligaments that stabilize and support your ankle and allow your foot to move. Because this joint carries your entire body’s weight and enables you to walk, it is a critical joint that is also vulnerable to injury. From minor sprains to complex fractures, you can trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians to restore your ankle to optimal health and function.
