Ankle sprains are the most common sports injury and typically involve trauma to the ligaments on the outside of your ankle after ‘going over’ on it. With time the majority of ankle sprains will heal on there own. However, without appropriate intervention the likelihood of re-spraining your ankle significantly increases.
Treatment for ankle sprains is targeted to complement your body’s natural healing process. Specific exercises will be shown to strengthen muscles that are weaker following injury and to improve feedback from injured nerves.
