These injuries take much longer to heal than a typical lateral ankle sprain (typically around 6 weeks time). Again, just as previously discussed with other basketball injuries these are treated on an individual basis. Most of these injuries will heal conservatively, but based on the degree of tear and separation between the tibia and fibula in addition to the disruption of the medial ankle ligaments may determine if surgical repair is warranted. If there is lingering pain associated with and ankle injury I strongly recommended coming into the office for further evaluation and management.
