Sports injuries mainly include ligament injuries such as the anterior cruciate, or lateral ligament injuries of the ankle following an ankle sprain. Other sports injuries include cartilage injuries, meniscal injuries, or upper and lower limb fractures.

Initial investigations confirm the severity of the ligament injury, then we can discuss options on which way to go. Most ankle ligament injuries can be managed without surgery for the first few months, then only need surgery if they are persistently unstable or painful. Other ligament injuries often need a surgical option but can be trialled with a course of non-operative management depending on the activities you wish to get back to.

Below are examples of how to repair an ankle lateral ligament and an ACL if surgery is required.

We have much more information to give you about sports injuries!
