Ankle Sprain Treatment

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, we know that an ankle sprain can significantly impact your mobility and daily life. As the leading foot and ankle care provider in Dallas, our approach to ankle sprains is comprehensive, up-to-date, and patient-centric.

Understanding Ankle Sprains

Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments that support the ankle stretch or tear, often due to twisting, turning, or rolling the ankle. Symptoms typically include pain, swelling, and difficulty walking.

Our Approach to Ankle Sprain Treatment

Our treatment protocol for ankle sprains involves:

  • Assessment and Diagnosis: Through careful examination and potentially imaging studies, we determine the severity of your sprain and the best treatment path.
  • Immediate Care: Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) are typically the first line of treatment for sprains.
  • Physical Therapy: We develop personalized physical therapy plans to restore strength and prevent future sprains.
  • Surgical Treatment: In severe or recurrent cases, surgical intervention might be necessary to repair the damaged ligaments.

Recovering at Home: Steps for Ankle Sprain Care

While we provide expert medical treatment, there are also steps you can take at home to facilitate your recovery:

  1. Rest and Protect Your Ankle: Avoid putting weight on your injured ankle to prevent further damage.
  2. Use Ice Therapy: Apply an ice pack for 15-20 minutes every 2-3 hours to help reduce swelling.
  3. Compression: Use an elastic bandage for compression to control swelling.
  4. Elevation: Keep your ankle elevated above the level of your heart to minimize swelling and promote healing.
  5. Pain Management: Use over-the-counter pain relievers as directed by your healthcare provider.

With the guidance of our team, you’ll also learn exercises to do at home to regain your ankle’s strength and flexibility.

At Lakewood Foot and Ankle Specialists, we prioritize your recovery and long-term foot and ankle health. We provide not just immediate care but also comprehensive rehabilitation and education to prevent future injuries. Trust us to guide you through your healing journey and help you return to your regular activities with confidence.

I love Dr. McClurkin and Dr. Burge! Everyone is so helpful and they really know what they're doing. I will definitely see them again!
I have plantar fasciitis in both feet and suffered with pain on and off for many years. After trying another round of steroids with little improvement (this time the left foot was the culprit of my pain), Dr. Burge suggested I try their Lunula Laser. I must say I was skeptical at something for which I didn't see or feel anything during treatment. After completing the 6th round I realized I was not feeling the stabbing pain in my heel, that I had used my water socks and been at the pool with no pain afterwards, and I had worn my dressy sandals all weekend long and not complained of pain in my left foot at all! Now, that was a huge success for me! My right foot is acting up a bit now. I know what to do this time. No more steroids! It will be Lunula Laser for me!
Thank you for your excellent care. 🙏🏾💜
Dr Burge does a fantastic job especially with wound care and the office staff are super nice!
Dr. Burge is an amazing provider! I would refer all my friends and family to his office! ❤❤
Dr.Burge and his team are amazing!! I came in with an issue with my toe and he gave me a quick and simple solution. Dr. Burge's bedside manner is incredible, he is patient and takes the time to thoroughly explain his findings. I'd highly recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Burge has an exceptional bedside manner and is an excellent surgeon!
I was referred from a friend who had dr Burge help with his diabetic foot ulcer. My son came in for an ingrown toenail and we could not have been happier with the experience. The staff was fantastic, super friendly and very helpful. Dr burge is a younger guy related well to my teenage son and was very clear in his explanation of what was going on and how the procedure would progress.We would highly recommend him and his office as a great place to go.
UNFORTUNATELY broke my toe multiple times in the same year. FORTUNATELY I found Dr Burge. One of the kindest doctors I've ever met and such an efficient office. I never had to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be seen. I think my toe kept breaking because it liked him that much!
I can’t say enough about dr burge. His bedside manner is something I crave in every interaction I have. My foot could scare a grown man, and he made me feel like I could be a foot model. His attention to detail and gentle touch will never be forgotten.
Dr. Burge treated my ankle pain and it has not returned.
