An Ankle Sprain is the most common foot and ankle injury for children and adults alike. A sprain is usually caused by the twisting of your ankle and can happen during high impact activities like running or basketball or by simply stepping off a curb. Regardless of how it happens, great force is exerted on the ankle ligaments.
Because ankle sprains are so common, they are too often neglected or under-treated, which has led to alarming increase in people needlessly suffering long term pain, instability, and what could have been totally avoidable surgeries.
The physicians at UFAI are leaders in better educating ankle specialists, hospital emergency rooms and physical therapists about the critical importance of timely and comprehensive ankle injury care. University Foot and Ankle Institute has documented the largest ever study on a triad injury of the ankle and has helped many orthopedic product companies develop products related to chronic ankle instability and pain.
