Is It an Ankle Strain or Ankle Sprain?

Ankle strains and ankle sprains have very similar symptoms as they affect the soft tissues so sometimes it is difficult for patients to distinguish between them. The main difference is that they are caused by injuries in separate parts of the ankle.

Ankle sprain is caused by overstretching, twisting or tearing of the ankle ligaments which are the fibrous tissue around joints that connect bones together.

Ankle strain is caused by overstretching, twisting or tearing of the muscles and tendons. Tendons are cords of fibrous tissue that connect the muscles to the bones.

Our ankle physiotherapist will assess and determine the nature of your injury and will recommend and apply the most suitable treatment for your fast recovery.

What Are the Symptoms of a Broken Ankle?

Having a broken ankle is the most serious case of ankle injury and you will need to undergo some detailed medical tests. The symptoms of a broken ankle are as follows:

  • Numbness in the ankle area
  • Very painful ankle
  • Bruised ankle
  • Swollen ankle
  • Impossibility to move your toes

How to Treat a Broken Ankle?

Broken ankle treatment will begin with immobilising your ankle joint either with a cast or with a protective boot. If the injury is more severe and depending on the broken bone(s), your doctor may recommend surgery.

The rehabilitation treatment for your ankle can begin after the injury has healed. Our specialised physiotherapists will recommend a personalised treatment and rehabilitation plan that will help strengthening your ankle muscles and restore its full mobility. The treatment techniques will vary depending on whether your ankle had surgery or the injury was less serious. Our qualified sports physiotherapists will use specific techniques like manual therapy, stretching, manipulation and strengthening exercises so that you restore the full range of motion of your ankle and get back to using it confidently.

How to Prevent Ankle Injuries?

Ankle injuries occur quite often in everyday life and during sports activities like running or tennis. Following these simple tips can help you reduce the risk of ankle injury:

  • Begin your day or exercise by stretching and warming up your ankle muscles. Light stretches and a short run are a perfect way to warm up before any sports activity and avoid the risk of injury.
  • Build the strength of your ankle muscles gradually by slowly increasing the intensity and duration of your activity and exercises. This will contribute to ankle stability and better mobility.
  • Wear comfortable shoes on all occasions. Good quality shoes are important for maintaining the stability of the ankle.
  • When running or doing sports always pay attention to the surroundings or the surfaces. Most ankle injuries occur on uneven surfaces.
  • Consult a sports physiotherapist for ways to maintain your physical activity in a safe and injury-free way. Our sports physio can recommend safe techniques and lifestyle changes to prevent ankle injuries from happening in the future.
