There is no doubt that active sports that involve running and jumping can put our ankles at risk. But the truth is, so can taking a hike, climbing stairs, or slipping on a wet floor.
Most injuries are a result of an acute trauma. However, some are a result of repetitive activity. With ankles, twisting injuries are the most common, and can result in ligament sprains and tears. Fractures are usually the result of a higher impact injury.
Dr. Thomas has extensive experience in treating ankle conditions. The good news is most of these conditions respond very well to conservative, non-surgical treatment. However, if surgery is required, Dr. Thomas is a thorough and experienced surgeon, board certified and fellowship trained in minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques.
