Ankle Pain Information & Treatment
Ankle pain is characterized by irritation and inflammation of the ankle, a condition that often results from an inherently unstable ankle, trauma, or an athletic injury. About 60 percent of all foot and ankle injuries, reported by the US population older than 17, were sprains and strains of the ankle.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. See a podiatrist to rule out a fracture or a ligament tear. Immediate treatment often results in complete healing and a return to normal function. For a recent injury, we recommend cold therapy, the steplite ankle walker, and Biofreeze Pain Reducing Gel. For ongoing, occasional ankle pain, we highly recommend Arch Supports, or the knit ankle support.
SHOE RECOMMENDATIONS: The Drew Shoes are designed to treat Ankle Varus, Ankle varus is a condition where the ankles roll out, diminishing the stability and overall alignment of the body.
