Helping You Manage Your Ankle Pain

A sore ankle can make it painful to stand or walk.

Ankle pain can develop from injuries to the ligaments such as tears and stretching, be caused by arthritis, or be due to the shape of your feet or the strength of your ankles. The discomfort can range from mild to severe, but treatment options for ankle pain in Brandon, FL, are available for you at Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists.

We can help diagnose your ankle pain and develop a treatment plan to suit your unique needs.

When should I seek care for ankle pain?

Wearing overly high or unsupportive shoes, or experiencing a trip or fall, could cause fleeting ankle pain, and if the soreness dissipates there shouldn't be cause for concern. However, if you have lasting pain, experience swelling, bruising, or stiffness, or if physical activity exacerbates your discomfort it's a good idea to visit your podiatrist.

What are the treatments for ankle pain in Brandon, FL?

Your podiatrist will first evaluate the cause and severity of your foot pain, possibly taking an x-ray, before advising at home or in-office care or a combination.

For less severe cases, you may find your discomfort is alleviated by icing your ankle, elevating it to chest level, and taking a break from extensive walking or other exercises. If you have flat feet, shoe inserts or cushioned footwear may help you find relief. Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications are another option. Wrapping the ankle in a bandage may also be beneficial.

More intensive treatments include physical therapy to help with mobility or taking prescription medication. Your podiatrist may also recommend wearing an ankle brace. Severe injuries may require surgery.
