Foot/Ankle Sprain/Strain

Ankle sprains affect ligaments (the thick bands of tissue that connect bones in a joint) and are caused by a trauma such as rolling or twisting that displaces the ankle joint from its normal alignment. Strains affect the muscles or tendons (cords of tissue that connect muscles to bone) and can be caused by overstretching or overuse. Note: Estimates include the total cost of care for treating an ankle sprain or strain (for example, physician visits, imaging tests, medication, etc.).

Note: The estimates below are based on Medica Choice network contract rates. How were these costs calculated?
