The ankle joint is stabilized by ligamentous connections inside, outside and those between the tibia and fibula. These ligaments are often injured by the classic twisting of the foot. In many cases, the ligaments heal again with rest and targeted training of the muscles. More serious injuries can be treated very well by surgery.
My treatment spectrum
Instability in the lateral malleolus, between the tibia and fibula, or in the medial malleolus is surgically corrected either by direct reconstruction of the ligaments-that is, suturing them back together-or by replacement with the patient’s own tendons.
