Ankle injuries are among the most common problems treated by foot doctors. An ankle sprain or strain often happens without warning by rolling your foot over while playing sports or by awkwardly stepping on a curb while crossing the street. The ankle joint consists of many bones, ligaments, and other tissues that are susceptible to stress and injury. Even a seemingly minor injury can be severe and lead to future problems if improperly treated.
If you have recently suffered a sprained ankle, see your foot doctor to ensure proper healing and to help avoid chronic ankle instability and avoid the need for future surgery. At Atlantic Foot and Ankle Specialists, Dr. Melissa Robitaille and Dr. Todd Newsom treat virtually all types of foot and ankle disorders including bunions, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, and heel pain. Equipped with leading-edge technologies such as extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) and laser surgery for toenail fungus, we provide specialized, compassionate service for patients in the Pooler, Georgia area of Chatham County.
