As summer is approaching, there will be more and more outdoor activities. Running, beach volleyball and basketball are popular with weekend warriors and are also common causes of sprained ankles .
The most common ankle sprain we see at Markham Chiropractic + Rehab is when your foot turns inwards (aka inversion ankle sprain). This type of injury stretches the ankle ligaments (either the anterior talofibular ligament and/or calcaneofibular ligament) causing pain, swelling and gait imbalance.
It is important to stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle, but sprained ankles will get in the way of you staying active.
Physiotherapy services at Markham Chiropractic + Rehab will help you focus on the path of a speedy recovery with active exercises, mobilization and passive therapies. More importantly, addressing the ankle sprain quickly will make sure you heal properly and prevent future injuries.
