Some Conditions

An ankle sprain is a very common injury in any sport or in daily life. Most of the time, a sprain would involve a minor injury to the lateral ligaments of the ankle. This would involve the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) and/or the calcaneofibular ligaments (CFL). In minor sprains, return to activity can be quick and recovery uncomplicated. RICE treatment (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation) can be useful to reduce swelling and pain during recovery. In more serious injuries, the lateral ligaments can be partially or fully torn. In these situations, recovery may be prolonged and complications can develop. It is useful to consult a foot and ankle or orthopaedic/sports doctor as well as a physiotherapist during rehabilitation and recovery. Read our media articles on…

As knowledge in foot and ankle conditions progresses, physicians have realized that many people do not return to normal function after an ankle injury. This has been termed chronic ankle dysfunction. There can be many possible causes, which can include: Improper rehabilitation The development of ankle impingement from ligament injury Instability or a ‘loose’ ankle Talus osteochondral (cartilage lesions) Other occult injuries Effective treatment for many of these underlying causes of chronic ankle dysfunction is available.

There are various types of upper limb and lower fractures that can occur in active young adults as well as later on in life. Our approach for these injuries is to optimize the outcome in terms of joint and limb function. This is done by timely diagnosis and treatment together with active post-operative rehabilitation.
