Have ankle sprains put a temporary halt to your running adventures? Don’t let them keep you down for long!

In this blog post, we will explore the causes, symptoms, and effective treatment options for ankle sprains, highlighting how our expertise can support your healing process and guide you towards getting back on your feet.

Understanding Ankle Sprains:

Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments that support the ankle joint are stretched or torn, often due to a sudden twist or roll of the foot. This type of injury is common among runners, especially when running on uneven surfaces or during abrupt changes in direction. Symptoms include pain, swelling, instability, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected ankle.

Our skilled physical therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation to assess the severity of your sprain and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Treatment may include a combination of techniques such as manual therapy, therapeutic exercises to improve strength and flexibility, and balance training to enhance ankle stability. We may also utilize modalities like ultrasound or electrical stimulation to accelerate healing and reduce pain. Additionally, we will provide guidance on protective bracing, activity modification, and gradual return to running to prevent re-injury.
