Ankle and Knee pain
If you have ever twisted your ankle, you might still have some weakness, which could still be causing problems. Occasionally the end of the bone on the outside of the ankle breaks but more often the ligaments of the ankle on the outside and front and get torn and produce massive swelling and bruising.
It can take anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks to recover from the immediate injury but, the ligaments very rarely repair satisfactorily and often become full of scar tissue, which is not elastic.
This increases the likelihood of rolling over again causing several further sprains. Such repeated traumas will influence the mechanics of the ankle and cause problems in the joint and the structures above, such as the knee and spine.
Treatments by Chiropractic specialist can help to heal injury and sprains properly, preventing recurring problems.
