Ankle Pain and Physiotherapy
Ankle pain is most often felt with an ankle sprain or injury to
structures within the ankle joint. These can range from muscle sprains
or pulls, to ligaments being over stretched, to bone fractures and other
related soft tissue injuries. It often occurs when the feet is plantar
flexed and accompanied with a sideways motion that over-stretches the
ligament holding the ankle together (the side ligament).
level of pain experience varies from individual's pain tolerance
threshold and the severity of injury - the more severe or serious the
injury or trauma was, the more intense, frequent and occurrence of the
pain experience. Types of pain includes throbbing, pulling, aching,
stabbing, burning, cramping, jolting, to name a few.
presented with a case of ankle pain, our physiotherapists will need to
first assess and determine the cause of pain, and the best treatment.
Pains from basic sprains are managed with Cold Therapy to decrease inflammation and Ultrasound
to accelerate ligamental healing. If necessary, we will refer for the
occupational therapy or hand therapy team to fabricate a resting ankle
splint to allow the ankle to rest in the best position available.
there is no fracture, the inflammation will subside within 2 - 4 weeks,
after which we can then start more active physiotherapy intervention.
The modalities that we often use are ultrasound, joint Manipulation & Mobilization, active Exercise and Movement therapy, stretches and Deep Tissue Massage, as well as strengthening.
