Ankle ligament injuries are very common, not only among professional athletes. The injury can range from overstretching resulting in a slight sprain to a severe capsular ligament injury. We fear a torn ligament in particular because it usually requires a longer rest period. Through a quick assessment by clinical examination and magnetic resonance therapy (MRI) here at medalp, you will understand the extent of your injury on the same day. Sometimes prompt surgery is unavoidable. The injured ligament is fixed, for example, with special screws or reconstructed using plastic cords or the patient's own tissue, thus stabilising the joint as a whole. If surgery is necessary, it is minimally invasive wherever possible, resulting in excellent chances for healing and faster rehabilitation.
We also treat bunions, in addition to sports injuries.
