Chronic ligament laxity underlies recurrent ankle sprains at different times. The ligaments that keep the ankle fixed are affected as a result of injuries such as sprains. If improper treatments are applied, especially for sprains in the foot, they may cause chronic ligament laxity. In patients with chronic ligament laxity, ankle may sprain during the slightest physical activity. As a result of such sprains, pain and difficulty walking may occur in people. In advanced cases, it causes damage to the tendon and cartilage tissue.
Chronic ligament laxity, which is the most important cause of recurrent sprains, is treated with surgical methods. Thanks to the surgery, the loose ligaments are repaired and strengthened. After the operation, the patient should not step on their feet and use crutches for a while.
