Ankle injuries and how to avoid them

On Bodytalk this week, Jules Bottazzi chatted to Mr Krishna Vemulapalli, one of the consultant orthopaedic surgeons at Spire Hartswood Hospital. He specialises in foot and ankle surgery, as well as general trauma (injuries) and children’s orthopaedic problems. 

Krishna chatted to Jules about ankle injuries and why it’s important not to ignore a minor injury and to make sure that you do all the right things to prevent future problems. He described the varying types of sprain that can occur and what to do if you suffer from one - and also spoke about more severe ankle injuries, that can require surgery.

The subject of footwear was discussed and Jules was intrigued to discover that flat ballet pumps can cause nearly as many problems as skyscraper heels! The correct heel height, ladies, is 2.5cm!
