Ankle sprains

Ankle sprains are quite common and if treated early on can be resolved rather quickly. If left untreated, it is not uncommon for it to become a chronic issue with recurrent sprains and instability.

There are two types of ankle sprains inversion and eversion with inversion being the most common (rolling the ankle outwards and the inside of the foot turning up).

The inversion sprain typically involves the Talus bone being displaced as a result of the ligaments that are retaining it are torn and the bone gives way moving in an anterior and superior plane out of the anatomical ankle mortise. The results are a displaced bone and injured ligaments healing with scar tissue in a stretched / lax state, hence the future instability.

I have developed a protocol over the past 28 years to correct this issue involving manipulation of the joint, ultrasound, electric muscle stimulation, specific supplements to promote better healing, a specific orthotic for support and the use of Kinesiotape to reduce swelling and provide stability in the healing process.

What follows is a pair of pictures the first is less than an hour after the inversion sprain and the next is less than 24 hours later...as you can see the results are quite profound....

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I was first recommend to Dr. Molloy a few years ago, and then last year re-injured my back. Dr. Molloy was able to diagnose my problem even before the MRI. Began treating immediately, which after months of pain I finally was able to return to normal activities. I continue to visit for regular adjustments. The Doctor and his office staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Being able to see him on my schedule is great. Highly recommended."

  • "DOC FIXED MY HEART ATTACK!!!! Seriously, after a morning at Condell ER for chest pain, nothing was found. Chest pain continued. Went to Doc, explained the pain. He adjusted a rib in my sternum I had sprained cleaning/moving my 230 pound Dad. Pain immediately GONE!! I have known Doc is a miracle worker for more than 30 years, but this took the cake!! I LOVE you all !!!"
