Get Back to Moving, Free of Ankle Pain

The ankle joint allows the foot to perform up-and-down and side-to-side movements. Ankle pain and injuries are common in individuals of all ages. Injuries usually occur during physical activity but simply walking on an uneven surface can cause a sprained ankle.

Whether you are experiencing dull or debilitating ankle pain, our orthopedic specialists at Essentia Health will customize your treatment so that you can get up and moving again.
