Ankle Sprains

Ankle Sprain Treatments in Kansas City

Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries we see in Kansas City.

There are two common mechanisms of injury for an ankle sprain: a lateral sprain or a medial sprain. A lateral sprain, also known as an inversion sprain, is the most common type of ankle sprain and results from the foot being rolled inward, stretching the ligaments and muscles on the outside of the ankle. The other mechanism of injury is a medial sprain, or eversion ankle sprain, resulting from the foot rolling outward, stretching the ligaments on the inside of the ankle.


Pain and Symptoms may include
