Pain is typically the first symptom after an ankle sprain has occurred. Swelling, bruising, and a limited range of motion in the foot are also common. If you hear a clicking or popping noise in the ankle, this can be indicative of more serious complications and you should contact Dr. Evan Merrill as soon as possible. Broken bones are not always obvious to the patient.
Ankle sprains tend to vary in intensity. If weight bearing on the foot is limits your activity, you should contact Dr. Merrill today. The level of pain that comes with the sprain is closely associated with the amount of time it will take to heal. It’s essential for you to understand that the more intense the injury you’ve obtained, the longer and more involved the healing process will be. This process can be greatly accelerated by scheduling an appointment today.
