Ankle injury rehabilitation

The most common ankle injury is an ankle strain. An ankle strain is an injury to the ligaments of the ankle. Ligaments provide connection between the many bones that come together to form the ankle joint.

These ligaments are injured when a greater than normal stretching force is applied to them. Injuries can occur in any number of ways, most commonly when awkwardly planting the foot.

Treating ankle injuries

Initially, treat an ankle injury by immediately applying ice and taking or applying anti‐inflammatory medication. Elevating the ankle is also important to help the body absorb fluid that has leaked into the tissue, and will help minimise swelling to the area. Gentle compression provides support and helps prevent swelling.

If you suspect you have an injured ankle you should seek a diagnosis from an appropriate health professional.

If you're recovering from an ankle injury, call us on (03) 9387 0800 to find out how we can help.
