Ankle sprains occur when the ankle is forced into an abnormal position causing stretching and tearing of the ligaments surrounding the ankle joint. Chronic instability may be the result of; incomplete rehabilitation, excessive laxity, nerve damage, abnormal alignment, tendon dysfunction.
Pedorthic treatment is focused on providing stability to the foot and ankle. Orthotic design may include a deep heel cup and a lateral wedge to increase stability. It is essential to wear proper fitting footwear based on your mechanics and activity. For added support we carry a variety of ankle braces. Propioception and strengthening exercises are recommended in conjunction with orthotic therapy.
