Treatment of Sprains, Strains, Fractures and Common Foot & Ankle Injuries
If you suspect that you have broken or sprained your foot or ankle, it is essential that you seek medical attention right away. Walking around on an injury can only make it worse over time; acting quickly helps ensure a faster, more thorough healing process. Injuries we treat in both of our Long Beach foot care offices include:
Sprained Ankles: Sprained ankles are one of the most common injuries because it's so easy for anyone to be affected. One misstep or roll of the foot can result in the ankle joint twisting or turning, causing the ligaments to stretch beyond their normal range.
Foot and Ankle Stress Fractures: A stress fracture is an overuse injury, they are one of the few foot and ankle injuries that take a while to develop. A stress fracture is a small crack in the bone that develops when the muscles are too tired, the muscle system transfers the stress and pressure to the bones instead. Stress fractures are most common in runners, athletes and other physically active people.
Foot and Ankle Fractures: A fracture is also more commonly known as a broken bone. Like sprains, they can truly happen to anyone. However, they are more common in active individuals and people who have been in car accidents.
Turf Toe: Turf toe can affect many different athletes and it occurs when a toe is forcibly bent upward—like when someone is pushing off into a sprint—and the big toe becomes sprained. There are different grades of severity when it comes to turf toe, so be sure to see a doctor before trying to treat it on your own.
