An ankle sprain is an injury which occurs when the ankle rolls, twists or turns in an abnormal way. This may tear the ligaments that help hold the ankle structure together. Sprained ankles may present with swelling, bruising, tenderness, pain and the sensation of instability.
Ankle sprains are common injuries that can occur for many reasons. Whether it be from playing sports or walking on uneven sidewalks. Anyone who does a lot of running, jumping and changing directions quickly may be at a large risk for experiencing ankle sprains. During the fall months, rain and wet leaves are present which make it extremely slippery. During the winter months, snow is present and causes slippery and icy sidewalks.
At Reddy Care, our physical therapists treat patients who have experienced ankle sprains by reducing their pain, regaining their strength, increasing motion, and improving their balance. The goal is to always return to normal activity levels and avoid reinjury. Based on how bad your sprain is, your therapist may provide you with the following:
