Reports estimate that 25,000 Americans suffer from an ankle sprain each day. Ankle sprains account for almost half of all sports injuries and are a common reason why athletes take time off from activities. Accurate diagnosis is critical, as some studies suggest that 40 percent of ankle sprains are misdiagnosed or poorly treated leading to chronic ankle pain, arthritis and disability.
More than 80 percent of ankle sprains are a result of inversion, or inward rolling, of the ankle. This is commonly experienced in athletic activities that involve running, pivoting and jumping.
Ankle instability might develop from an ankle sprain that did not heal properly or that was not rehabilitated completely. Ankle instability occurs when the outer side of the ankle “gives way” time and time again. People with chronic ankle instability experience a repeated turning of the ankle; persistent discomfort and swelling; pain or tenderness; and/or the ankle feeling wobbly.
Both ankle sprain and ankle instability, can lead to arthritis of the ankle that, in many cases, causes severe pain and disability.

Now PRP and stem cell procedures can help your ankle ligaments heal and thus repair the pain and instability of ankle sprain.
