Ankle Sprains Rehabilitation

How Ankle Sprains Occurs?

An ankle sprain is a type of injury to the ankle joint that usually occurs as a result of an accident or sudden deceleration. It can also be a result of natural wear and tear, which are common in everyday life.

Sprained ankles can be very painful and they can even affect your ability to walk. In order to get the best treatment for a sprained Ankle you should visit a physiotherapist.

What are the symptoms?

Common symptoms of ankle sprains include pain, swelling, limping and a loss of function. Initial treatment for ankle sprains should always involve rest, compression, elevation of the ankle joint.

It can often be treated with rest and application of ice or cold compresses but more developed treatment may be needed in more acute cases.

How Long It Takes To Recover From An Ankle Sprain?

The duration of the rehabilitation phase following a mild ankle sprain can range from three weeks to six months depending on the severity of the ankle sprain. In order to return to normal daily activity the ankle must be allowed to rest. This can often mean gradual progression upwards to light exercise and gradually returning to daily walking. Rest is particularly important for athletes and young children as well as the elderly and people suffering from osteoarthritis. Any ankle sprains treatment that does not allow the ankle to rest is likely to be ineffective and leave the patient with a worse condition than they had prior to the injury.
