Why Treat Ankle Sprains

Although ankle sprains will sometimes heal with rest and ice, Dr. Vikas A. Godhania, Podiatrist at ARC Far West Medical Tower, says “Severe sprains can lead to weakness and chronic instability of the ankle joint if left untreated.” In this recent podcast on KLBJ, Dr. Gohania explained the importance of treating a sprained ankle; “Severe sprains should not be ignored as they may require physical therapy, surgery or both.”

If you would like to talk to Dr. Godhania about an ankle sprain, he is currently accepting new patients at ARC Far West Medical Tower. Call 512-346-8888 or go online to schedule an appointment today.
