Ankle stabilization

An injury can occasionally leave incapacitating after-effects that require specialized care.

Ankle instability caused by repetitive sprains is often the result of ligament insufficiency that is can be treated with repair or reconstruction of the lateral ligaments. Painful snapping or popping on the lateral side of the ankle can occur with the displacement of certain tendons (subluxation of the peroneal tendons)and often requires surgery to stabilize the tendons.
