During the winter months, we often see a rise in people coming to us with sprained ankles.
Sprained ankles are a serious injury. People often report a popping sound and will notice significant swelling and bruising around the area, and it will be sore to touch. It will also be tender to stand or walk on, and you may need assistance from crutches or a walking aide to do so.
Our clinicians are expert in identifying and assessing these kinds of injuries and depending on the severity of the sprain, it may be that x-rays are organised to complete the assessment.
With these kinds of injuries, it is essential to seek help as soon as you can, as your risk of re-injury is high particularly if it is left untreated. Working with you, we can plan out a schedule of treatment based on your individual injury.
