Regain your confident walk with our ankle instability treatment in Pomona, CA, and the La Verne and Claremont, CA, areas.
What Causes Ankle Instability?
The most common cause of ankle instability is an ankle sprain that wasn’t allowed to heal properly. When you sprain your ankle, your ligaments can be stretched or even torn. When those ligaments don’t get repaired, the result is an ankle that struggles to support your weight. If you have suffered multiple sprains over a period of time, this can exacerbate your condition even further.
Is Surgery Necessary for Your Ankle Instability?
While Dr. O, Neill is a highly trained surgical specialist for ankle correction, he believes strongly that surgery should always be a last resort after more conservative treatments have been tried. In the case of ankle instability, there are a number of nonsurgical methods that Dr. O'Neill may first recommend, including ankle wraps, anti-inflammatory medications, or an ankle brace. If you do end up needing surgery for a torn or excessively damaged ligament, then you can rest easy knowing you’re in the hands of one of the best ankle surgeons in Pomona, CA.
Ultimately, the best way to know the right treatment for your weak ankle is to schedule a consultation with Dr. O'Neill, so he can evaluate the extent of the damage to your ligaments.
