At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Lilly Khavari specializes in treating ankle sprains, which occur when one or more ligaments in the ankle are stretched, partially torn, or completely torn. Ligaments are bands of tissue that connect one bone to another and provide stability to the ankle joint.
The severity of an ankle sprain can vary depending on the extent of the ligament damage and the number of ligaments involved. Ankle sprains can result from a sudden twist or a blow to the ankle joint, often while participating in sports or wearing inappropriate shoes. Weak ankles or previous ankle or foot injuries can also increase the risk of ankle sprains.
The signs and symptoms of ankle sprains can include pain, swelling, bruising, difficulty walking, and stiffness in the joint. These symptoms can vary in intensity, depending on the severity of the sprain. Even if pain and swelling are absent, it’s important to seek medical attention for any ankle sprain to prevent further injury and ensure proper healing.
At Carrollton Foot Center, Dr. Khavari offers comprehensive treatment options for ankle sprains. Treatment may include rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), immobilization in a cast or walking boot, physical therapy, and medication to manage pain and inflammation.
Dr. Khavari works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to their specific needs and goals. With her expertise in treating ankle sprains, Dr. Khavari prioritizes conservative, non-invasive interventions before considering more invasive options.
Overall, Dr. Khavari’s treatment approach for ankle sprains at Carrollton Foot Center emphasizes a personalized approach that prioritizes prompt and comprehensive medical attention. The Carrollton Foot Center team is committed to providing compassionate care and support to patients throughout their treatment journey.
