Ankle instability: Chronic ankle instability can occur when an ankle sprain has not completely healed. The ligaments that support the ankle may become stretched or torn. This can lead to further instability, pain, and swelling. After evaluation, treatments may include bracing, physical therapy, orthotics, and for severe cases, surgery.
