Do you have a weak or unstable ankle?

Ankle ligament sprains are one of the commonest injuries we see at the clinic. Most people with a mild ankle sprain can expect to make a good recovery, often with good physiotherapy input. 

Unfortunately a lot of people with more severe sprains do not recover and are left with pain or a tendency for the ankle to keep giving way or twisting. Some people have lived with a weak or unstable ankle for so long that they never really remember how it happened in the first place. Symptoms can range from a simple loss of confidence in the ankle to a severe tendency for the ankle to give way with very minor forces on it.

People are frequently told that nothing can be done to help. This is incorrect. Surgery to repair the ligaments and stabilise the ankle is simple with excellent results for most patients. Use of new techniques and implants such as the internal brace device allow people to walk straight away and return to even the more physically demanding activities rapidly.
