Ankle sprain

The foot in essence is a complex arrangement of small bones which are attached via the ankle joint to the leg with the ligaments providing the stability between the foot and the tibia/fibula. So an ankle sprain is a disruption of varying degrees to this stability mechanism.

Ankle sprains can generally be graded from 1 to 3 in increasing severity.

It's important to remember that the body has an inherent built in repair and restoration mechanism that kicks in at the moment of injury. Recurrent ankle problems are often due to injured tissue healing in a tight and shortened position and secondly the joints in the area become stiff which can have a knock on effect on walking and running etc.

So the key is to correctly assess the level of the injury and provide a rahab plan that ensures stretching and strengthening in an appropriate time frame.
