Why syndesmosis injury should be missed
A high ankle sprain, also known as a syndesmosis injury, is a common sporting injury that can occur in activities such as basketball, soccer, and football. These injuries are more severe than typical outside-of-the-ankle sprains and require accurate diagnosis and treatment to avoid complications.
My Sports Podiatrist, Docklands, uses diagnostic ultrasound to diagnose these injuries in the clinic.
We provide expert care and guidance to ensure a full and speedy recovery. Treatment depends on the stability of the ankle. Low-grade injuries are sometimes managed in a brace, whereas high-grade syndesmosis injuries require a lower leg cast or surgery.
If you suspect you may have suffered a high ankle sprain, don't delay in seeking professional help. Contact Docklands Podiatrist today for an appointment.
