A lateral ankle sprain is an injury affecting the ligaments on the outside of your ankle. It occurs when the foot is inverted or turned inwards, resulting in damage or tearing of the surrounding ligaments. Though it mostly affects athletes and those who participate in sports, anyone can get an ankle sprain with any activity that puts too much stress on the joints and ligaments.
A lateral ankle sprain is an injury to the ligaments of the ankle and can be caused by abrupt side to side movements of the ankle joint. Common symptoms of a lateral ankle sprain include pain, swelling, decreased range of motion, bruise or discoloration around the area, and difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected ankle. Additional signs may consist of tenderness to palpation, audible popping sound during injury, thigh muscle weakness due to protective reflexes initiated at time of injury, and a feeling of instability in that particular joint when weight-bearing.
A lateral ankle sprain, or a “rolled ankle,” is a common sports-related injury that affects the ligaments of the joint. Depending on the severity of the sprain, treatment may vary; however, chiropractic care and physiotherapy are among the most common interventions. A chiropractor will assess and adjust the alignment of bones and joints in order to restore proper balance and decrease pain. Additionally, strengthening exercises from a physical therapist will help stabilize ankle muscles. Furthermore, massage therapy can be used to reduce inflammation and expand range of motion in the area. It is important for individuals recovering from an ankle sprain to seek professional guidance for appropriate exercise recommendations as treatments should not be attempted without oversight from qualified healthcare providers.

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!
