A deltoid ligament sprain is one of the more common ankle injuries, caused by an unnatural motion or force placed on the ankle joint. The resulting pain due to a deltoid ligament sprain typically includes difficulty standing or walking on the affected leg, swelling, and bruising. It can range from a minor strain to a complete tear of the ligament or even a fracture of the ankle bone. There are several potential causes for a deltoid ligament sprain, including falls, twisting the ankle beyond its usual range of motion while participating in activities such as running or basketball, or even rolling over your foot while wearing high-heeled shoes.

A deltoid ligament sprain is a painful condition where one of the main ligaments connecting the tibia to the talus in the foot becomes stretched, weak, or torn. This can result from an abrupt twisting, landing on an uneven surface, or sudden change in direction. Symptoms may include pain at the ankle joint, swelling and bruising near the ankle, visible joint instability when standing or walking, and difficulty bearing weight on that ankle. It is important to seek medical attention for a deltoid ligament sprain as this condition can worsen overtime if left untreated.

A deltoid ligament sprain is a common ankle injury that occurs when the ligament is stretched or torn after it is subjected to an abnormal amount of force. Common symptoms of a deltoid ligament sprain include pain and swelling at the outside edge of the ankle, tenderness when pressure is applied, difficulty bearing weight on the affected area and a feeling of instability in the joint. While rest, ice interventions and compression are commonly recommended to reduce swelling and alleviate pain, sometimes an individual with a severe sprain may require surgery in order to properly repair the damage.

Treatment for this type of injury typically includes chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and massage therapy. Adjustments from a chiropractor focus on restoring joint mobility and stability, as well as re-aligning the bones in the affected area. Physiotherapy is also helpful for strengthening weakened muscles and reducing swelling, as well as teaching exercises to avoid re-injury. Massage therapy can break down scar tissue in the area of concern which will facilitate quicker rehabilitation from the injury. Together, chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and massage therapy are invaluable treatments for delivering relief from ankle pain associated with a deltoid ligament sprain.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
