In this video we discuss ankle sprains and the critical importance of early and proper care and treatment.
An ankle sprain occurs when the ankle is taken past its normal range of motion, resulting in damaged ligaments. Proper treatment of a sprained ankle can prevent re-injury or chronic problems.
Ankle Sprains are classified by a graded scale of severity from a slight stretch of the ligament with no tears to a complete tear of the ligament.
Severe ankle sprains often include fractures to surrounding bones and require more treatment and rehabilitation to avoid serious chronic issue.
