Ever sprained your ankle?
Have you ever rolled your ankle? … and then rolled it again? … and then again?? Lateral ankle sprains are frustrating and unless rehabilitated successfully, the risk of re-injury is very high.
The ATFL (anterior talo-fibular ligament) is the most commonly strained ligament, which not only causes weakness, but also a lack of neuro-muscular control. Even though the bruising and swelling may be gone, that doesn’t mean the injury has been treated.
Proper rehabilitation can involve a rather extensive range of non-weight bearing and weight bearing activities, as well as strengthening and proprioception exercises. At the new intraining Balance, Core and Sports Rehab Studio our physiotherapists and podiatrists can assist you with your rehabilitation.
