You Feel Unstable On Your Feet

You might struggle to stand up straight for long periods if you experience redness, swollen joints, and stiffness in your ankles. Even worse, you might even fall down and experience intense injury. A lack of stability and balance may signify more long-term problems with your ankles, which may require working with a skilled professional to manage properly, including getting physical therapy.

Your Ankle Hurts Every Day

It isn't normal for the ankle to hurt every day. If yours does and it limits your ability to perform day-to-day exercises, it might be time to visit your podiatrist for ankle pain in Brandon, FL. Ankles have to bear your weight every time you're on your feet, so if they hurt every day, you might need to get help to manage long-term complications that may otherwise affect your overall health.

You Broke Your Ankle

Are you having difficulty standing on your ankle or finding it impossible to walk? Did you slip and fall or twist your ankle in a serious incident, and the pain has become quite intense? You may have broken your ankle and need specialized help. Working with our team can help you stabilize the joint and minimize your risk of worsening your injury and experiencing more long-term issues.

Self-Care Methods Don't Work

Taking care of your ankle's pain may involve taking medications and applying heat and cold to the area to minimize swelling and improve its overall appearance. However, self-care methods may stop working at some point and leave you with a lot of pain. When this happens to you, it is time to reach out to a professional to learn more about the different methods available to you as a person.
