NFL Injury Week

This past week of football was a tough week for some star players. Washington’s own RGIII suffered another setback with a dislocated ankle, and the Benglas’ A.J. Green is out with possible turf toe.

Dislocated ankles are a tough injury for athelete’s and can mean weeks of recovery and physical therapy to get back into competetive shape. Here at Kentlands Foot & Ankle Center we like to see someone immediately after the injury to prevent secondary injury and stabilize the joint. Typically we would place a patient in a walking boot to keep the ankle stable while it heals. Physical therapy to stregnthen the muscles around the joint would follow after a few weeks.

For more information on ankle sprains, dislocation or breaks please call our office at 301-330-5666.
