SPRAINED ANKLE

WHAT IS A SPRAINED ANKLE?

A common injury when the tissue that connects your ankle bones and supports your ankle (ligaments) is torn or stretched beyond its limits, often after a fall, ankle roll or twist.

Ingrown toenails can be treated at home. However, if you have diabetes or other conditions that causes poor circulation you are risking yourself to complications that might require medical treatment.
