Ankle injuries are usually caused by rolling an ankle, twisting an ankle, or landing on the foot in a way that causes the full weight to shift onto one leg. The most common cause is when someone trips and falls. Other causes of injury include: stepping awkwardly off a curb, running into something like a wall or bench, or stepping on something sharp like broken glass or gravel.
Ankle injuries are usually painful and can cause swelling around the joint. If you have an ankle injury you should rest it as much as possible and ice it to help with pain and swelling.
Ankle injuries are among the most common sports injuries. The most common ankle injury is a sprain, which is when the ligaments in the ankle are torn. These ligaments can be torn by twisting or turning your foot too hard or landing on it wrong, causing your foot to roll over to one side.
Chiropractic care for ankle injuries is a therapy that manipulates your spine and joints to relieve pressure on nerves and improve mobility of your joints. It helps you heal faster from an injury and may help you avoid future problems with your back or neck.
