Torn ankle ligament – our treatment

A torn ankle ligament can happen quickly: A careless step and your foot is twisted. In the majority of cases, a ligament tear of the ankle joint heals without consequences. However, some leave chronic instabilities with a recurrent tendency to twist, which can then lead to permanent discomfort and pain. Our specialists in Neustadt have a high degree of experience in treating your torn ankle ligament and the resulting possible instabilities. The duration and type of therapy depend on the extent of your damage: In addition to a splint that immobilises your joint, specific physiotherapeutic exercises are often sufficient to allow your torn ankle ligament to heal.
However, if you suffer from chronic ligament instability or if the connective tissue between the bones is injured, a surgery is a sensible therapy, also to avoid long-term effects. Our experts at the Foot and Ankle Centre at Schoen Clinic Neustadt have many years of experience in surgical treatment for your torn ankle ligament. With gentle surgical techniques, you can quickly put your best foot forward again in everyday life, work and sport.
