  • What is an Ankle sprain?

    Ankle sprain

    An injury that affects many. And more than once

    Ankle sprains are one of the most common injuries occurring 20 million times per year in the US and Western Europe alone. 50% of ankle sprains happen during sporting activities. Injuries of the ankle joint generally affect the lateral ligaments of the ankle. Up to 40% of ankle sprains can lead to a re-injury and /or chronic instability. This risk can be reduced by proper post-injury care, rehabilitation, exercises and bracing.*

    Ankle sprain

    Risk factors

    • Recurrence: Highest risk factor is a previous injury - treated or untreated.
    • Intrinsic factors: Muscular imbalances, limited neuromuscular control.
    • Extrinsic factors: Uneven surfaces, sports without external stabilising tapes or braces.
    • Others: Factors influencing the risk of sporting activities are: type, intensity, preparation or physical condition

    Treatment

    The right steps after the misstep

    The effective treatment of an ankle sprain depends on the right measures being applied in different treatment phases and varies according to the grade of injury. The transition between the treatment phases is seamless - even though the requirements and application may vary from patient to patient. The appropriate choice of measures depends on individual factors, e.g. physical condition of the patient.

  • Grades

    Treatment phases

    Acute -
    alleviate symptoms and induce healing by:

    P - Protect the injury
    R - Restrict activity
    I  -  Apply Ice
    C - Apply compression
    E - Elevate the injured area

    • Stabilisation with bandages and/or braces.
    • Immobilisation with splints, casts or walkers.

    Ankle sprains are characterised by a high risk of recurring injuries and chronic consequences (up to 40%).* Effective treatment right from the start in the acute and rehabilitation phase can create a good basis to minimise that risk. Ongoing functional preventative measures allow the patient to return to daily and sporting activities.

  • Grades

    Treatment phases

    Rehabilitation -
    regain mobility by:

    • Stabilisation with bandages and/or braces and tapes
    • Gradual increase in the range of motion
    • Physiotherapy to improve muscular stabilisation and sensomotoric control

  • Grades

    Treatment phases

    Chronic & Prevention -
    Avoid reinjuries and chronic ankle instabilities by:

    • Stabilisation with bandages, tapes and elastic supports
    • Physiotherapy and exercise
