Have you had an ANKLE SPRAIN recently? Maybe you’ve had a few ankle sprains before and they continue to happen? Or perhaps you have an ankle that simply hasn’t fully recovered weeks to months after it happened? If so, then ankle rehab is what you NEED! Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries in sport. Your chances of having a second sprain after the first one is 40-70 % and this increases after each sprain. Up to 70% of people go on to develop chronic ankle pain, arthritis and instability. Furthermore, this can all lead to secondary injuries to the knee, hip or low back down the track. So the main message here is that ankle rehab is VERY IMPORTANT. In one of our earlier videos, our physio Sally explained a bit about what happens in an ankle sprain and what you can do in the beginning to help strengthen surrounding ankle muscles. Here our physio Matt demonstrates some useful exercise progressions that are used during ankle sprain rehab. This will help you get some more strength and stability back in the ankle. Remember, ankle rehab isn’t as simple as balancing on one leg with your eyes closed! Let us know below if you’ve had any nagging ankle injuries or simply want to learn more! 😊
