Ankle Sprains are common but chronic ankle sprains are common also. A chronic ankle sprain occurs when you have sprained your ankle, went through a healing process, and then suddenly sprained your ankle again. This is a nuisance as you will have to spend another six weeks in recovery.
Plantar Fasciitis is a painful problem causing disability and everyday pain. Usually plantar fasciitis manifests as heel pain and is often caused by a sudden increase in physical activity. Plantar Fasciitis is common in runners and other types of athletes.
Many people succumb to multiple ankles sprains one right after another. At Cross Bay Physical Therapy, we help our patients understand how to avoid this terrible fate. It is an awful experience to spend weeks resting and healing your ankle only to twist it again after a few days and have to spend more weeks in pain and physical therapy.
