Torn ankle ligament - Our treatment

A torn ankle ligament is a painful injury that occurs very often, especially in sports. But a brief twist in everyday life is often enough to tear the ligament.

The choice of the right treatment method depends on the degree of your damage. In general, very good treatment outcomes can be achieved using conservative measures. The injured ankle joint is immobilised for a few days until the swelling has subsided. A splint for the ankle joint and targeted physiotherapy help to relieve your pain and completely heal the torn ligament.

If bony parts next to the ligaments are affected or if the syndesmosis ligament is injured, surgery is a sensible treatment – especially for competitive athletes. Our foot and ankle surgery department is one of the largest specialist departments in Europe and treats a large number of patients with ligament tears every year – including regional and international top athletes. The most important thing for you is to be fit again quickly. We specialise in this and all our patients benefit from this expertise.
