Ankle Sprain

Ankle Sprain

Damage to ankle ligaments (an ankle sprain) typically occurs with simple, sudden traumatic incidents, such as rolling or twisting of the ankle. Pain, swelling, bruising and instability are commonly felt following such an incident.

Osteopaths may assist in the rehabilitation of a sprained ankle using soft tissue treatment, active and passive mobility exercises, balancing and re-strengthening exercises, and, where required, braces or strapping.
