Fort Worth Ankle Pain Treatment

Ankle pain is commonly caused by overuse or injury. The most common treatments for ankle pain include rest, ice, and elevation. If these treatments do not improve the pain, you may need to see a doctor for further treatment options. Surgery is rarely needed for ankle pain.

If you have ankle pain, it is important to rest your ankle as much as possible. Some treatments you can do at home for ankle pain are :

-Apply ice to the ankle for 20 minutes at a time, several times a day.

-Elevate your ankle above the level of your heart to reduce swelling.

-Wear a compressive wrap or Ace bandage to help support the ankle and reduce swelling.

-Take over-the-counter pain medication

if none of the above help your ankle pain , you may need to see a doctor. A doctor can prescribe stronger pain medication or give you a corticosteroid injection to help reduce the pain and swelling. In some cases, surgery may be needed to repair damage to the ankle joint. However, this is rare.

We always start with a conservative treatment for ankle pain , such as the ones listed above. However, if your pain does not improve after several weeks of treatment, you may need to move to more intensive treatment.
