What is an ankle sprain?
Unfortunate twists or turns of your ankle can quickly become a painful musculoskeletal injury called a sprained ankle. When you traumatize the ligaments in your ankle that hold the bones in place, you may need to see a specialist to help heal your sprain. Our board-certified and fellowship-trained podiatrists, Dr. Richard Swails and Dr. Dustin Lloyd, do an excellent job in consulting patients who had a recent ankle injury to ankles with severely torn ligaments that need surgery.
To diagnose your sprained ankle, you will need to come into our office for a consultation. You may have a referral from another physician, and you can bring images, like x-rays, CT scans, or an MRI, with you to your appointment with Dr. Swails or Dr. Lloyd. You may need to have additional imaging at the request of our podiatrist. To treat acute ankle sprain injuries, many patients are advised to stay off the foot as much as possible, put ice on to help with pain and swelling, and give it time to heal. However, when an ankle is not recovering on its own, there may be more significant damage to the area. It is also possible to injure a sprained ankle over and over by not staying off the foot. Chronic ankle pain and instability may necessitate our podiatrists to evaluate your ankle for surgery. For your convenience, we have an AAAASF-accredited operating room here on-site at Preston Surgery Center if you do need surgery. No matter what your diagnosis, your best interest is always at the forefront of planning out your treatment. We have transparent billing practices. To see how you could benefit from having your sprained ankle treated at Preston Surgery Center, reach out to us at our Frisco, TX location.

I couldn’t have asked for a better practice."- M.S. / Facebook / Feb 04, 2019
"After having a doctor that wouldn't listen to me, I was very pleased with Dr. Lloyd's bedside manner. He listened and tried a different approach for my plantar fasciitis that is actually working. I wish I wouldn't went to him 20 months ago."- C.J. / Healthgrades / Jan 24, 2020
