Foot and ankle sprains are common injuries to ligaments, which are bands of tissue that connect bones. These injuries can affect your ability to walk, participate in sports, and enjoy your favorite activities.
Orthopedists at NYU Langone Orthopedic Center are experts in diagnosing and treating foot and ankle sprains. They work with specialists at Rusk Rehabilitation to provide therapies designed to improve strength, mobility, and balance after these injuries. Together, they help make sure you recover fully and return to daily activities as quickly as possible.
Treatment may include activity restriction, rest, the use of ice and elevation, braces or walking boots, and physical therapy. Sometimes, treatment may include surgery.
