  • TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS DISCUSSES ANKLE SPRAINS, FRACTURES AND LONSTANDING ARTHRITIS

 

 

 

 

Podiatrist, Dr. Ashley Ledger, DPM states, "Minor injuries start to wear down ankle joints over time, and when the ankle is moved out of alignment briefly during a sprain, it causes friction between the soft ends of the bone. The soft ends can wear down causing bone on bone erosion. Repeated sprains hasten the process.  When the bones of the ankle joint are broken, that type of trauma to the joint can occur in a much faster period of time. More patients are seeking relief for painful ankles and this trend plays out in the examining rooms of many foot and ankle surgeons every day, but seems to worsen in winter months."  
 
The only bone in the body that has no muscle attachments and makes up a large portion of the ankle joint.  When the ankle joint is sprained or fractures, many times the talus bone is placed out of alignment the only way to put it back in it's proper place is through an adjustment or manipulation.  
 
At our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics we have trained foot specialists who are trained in this procedure.  
 
If you or a loved one are searching for honest, competent advice, foot care or custom orthotics, look no further than our foot clinic.
