Ankle SprainsThe Atlanta Falcon’s Darius Johnson sprained his ankle in the team’s last game against the Redskins, although he continued to play for 29 more snaps before leaving the field. He skipped the team’s subsequent practice, and it’s currently unknown how much more of the rest of the season he’ll be able to play for.

Johnson originally started on the practice squad but was upgraded on the roster to replace injured teammate Roddy White. “We've got a couple games left this season. So, he needs to get himself as healthy as possible before he goes out there and play,” White said of Johnson’s condition.

Ankle sprains are easily treatable and affect many active people. If you have persistent ankle pain and you think it might be sprained, consider contacting chiropodist  Marz Hardy of Academy Foot and Orthotics Clinics. Marz Hardy will examine your ankle and guide you to provide solutions to your foot or ankle pain.

How Do Ankle Sprains Happen?

Sprain injuries take place when the ligaments are torn or stretched beyond their limits. There are various ways that the ankle can become injured. In fact even the simple act of walking could cause a sprain. Ankle damage can occur by losing footing or walking on uneven terrain.

What are the Symptoms?

  • Mild to moderate bruising
  • Limited mobility
  • Swelling
  • Skin discoloration

How Can I Care for my Ankle at Home?

Self-care for ankle sprains includes propping the ankle up and keeping it elevated, applying ice packs as needed, and remaining off your feet. Some may also find that wrapping the ankle with an ACE bandage and taking over-the-counter pain relievers helps. One of the most important things is avoiding further stress to the affected area.

Preventing Sprains

  • Wearing appropriate shoes
  • Stretching before participating in physical activity
  • Knowing your limitations

Sprain Treatment

Treatment of a sprain depends on its severity.  Many times people are told to rest and remain off their feet while others are given an air cast, which allows you to walk while stabilizing the ankle.  However surgery may be required in more severe cases
