Ankle Pain Treatment
At Muscle Joint Bone Clinic, Your Body Matters.
Ankle pain is commonly due to a sprain or tendinitis and can range from mild which can resolve in 24 hours or severe which can require surgical repair. Sprains which are defined as a tearing of the ligaments that connect bone to bone and help stabilize the joint.
Ankle injuries are one of the most common sporting injuries in sports, especially netball, basketball, football and volleyball where there is jumping, twisting and turning movements.
An ankle sprain may take longer to heal if the ankle joint becomes unstable. Acute ankle sprains result from a force to the ankle joint and players usually hear a ‘snap’ due to the tearing of the ligament.
Immediate treatment of any soft tissue injury consists of the RICER protocol which is ‘rest, ice, compression, elevation and referral’.
A sports medicine professional should be seen as soon as possible to determine the extent of the injury. If you have ankle pain call us as soon as possible to book in to see our experienced staff for an ankle pain treatment plan.
