The ankle is exposed to more stress than any other joint in the body and is therefore highly susceptible to strain, injury and pain.  

Ankle injuries tend to fall into two categories: sprains and/or fractures although ankle pain can be caused by other problems such as a biomechanical  malfunction of the foot or ankle caused by repeated stress or osteoarthritis.

Our specialist podiatry services will provide the correct diagnoses of these injuries and in most cases a foot specialist will provide a simple treatment and rehabilitation programme that will be sufficient to heal and strengthen areas of injury and weakness.

Treating ankle injury through a footcare clinic is the most effective way of ensuring the injury has fully healed is important to prevent ongoing ankle instability and recurrent injury and pain. Our Kent podiatry clinics are experts in ankle injury, with specially trained sports podiatrists who can effectively assess and treat any injuries.
