#LosAngelesCA #MemphisTN Ankle sprains are extremely common, but so are the mistakes that people make when treating a sprain.

This is Doctor Nathan Lucas. Let’s look at part two of my three-part podiatry series for residents of Los Angeles and Memphis about ankle sprains.

If you suffer a sprain, never assume that an elastic bandage is sufficient for healing. While perhaps a bandage can help the ankle heal in some ways, it is vital not to overlook the fact that the affected ligament may have sustained a tear, or could be severely overstretched, thus warranting immediate medical attention.

It is always necessary to see your podiatrist for a complete examination whenever you become injured by an ankle sprain. I encourage you to stop by my office in Los Angeles and Memphis anytime that we can be of help.
