Ankle Pain

Ankle Pain

Ankle sprains are extremely common, they can occur to sportspersons during their sport but of course can happen to any person who rolls over or twists their ankle causing an overstretching of the ligaments.

Ankle sprains vary from Grade 1 to 4 in severity. Grade 1 sprains are often a mild problem with people often continue playing on however a grade 3-4 sprain would be a severe injury requiring crutches to walk. 

Like any ligament sprain the best treatment for the first 2-3 days is the use of rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE). 

Once the pain and swelling is controlled, skilled physiotherapists can help get the ankle movements, strength back and then help return the patient back to exercise. 

Re injury is often high and therefore North Lakes Physiotherapists will always ensure a full rehabilitative programme is practiced and include proprioceptive exercises to reduce the chances of reoccurrence.
