At Ocean County Sports Medicine, we specialize in treating various foot and ankle conditions such as ankle sprains, joint surface injuries and fractures.
The ankle joint provides the body with balance, stability and the ability to bear the body’s weight. It must do all these tasks while being exercised and manipulated on a daily basis. Ankle sprains are one of the most common orthopedic injuries, occurring equally in both sexes and all ages. Athletes most often report these injuries, although it is not uncommon to see ankle sprains in those who suddenly trip on a step, slip without warnings or ignore feelings of fatigue during exercise.
