An ankle sprain is a stretch or tear in one or more of the lateral (outside) ligaments of the ankle.
The very common ankle sprain can be more complex than you think and requires proper management to ensure a full recovery.
The following leaflet outlines:
- what it is
- how long it takes to heal
- what you should do immediately after you sprain your ankle.
- what treatment options are there
- exercises you can do to help in the longer term rehabilitation of the injury
- sport specific information on this topic
Following this acute management phase, book an appointment so we can start some ‘hands-on’ treatment to mobilise and strengthen the joint.
This phase of treatment is crucial to ensure you return to full function and prevent future injury.
