A brief summary of what you'll find inside our treatment guide.
Collateral Ligament Sprains involve damage to the connective tissue and ligaments that surround the ankle and connect the lower leg to the foot.
Ankle Sprains are nearly always traumatic in origin and caused by the joint being stretched beyond its normal range of movement. The most common Ankle Sprains involve inwards rolling of the foot; often when running or walking on an uneven surface.
- Swelling, redness and heat around the affected area
- Pain when attempting to move the foot or weight bare
- Pulsatile throbbing and numbness into the foot, ankle and toes
- Bruising around the foot, ankle and sometimes the knee
In most cases, Collateral Ligament Sprains are not serious. However, they can result in stiffness, reduced mobility and secondary problems which develop after the injury has healed.
If left untreated scar tissue and adhesions forms around the injury site which increases the likelihood on re-injury.
Pain always causes a protective guarding in the tissues which shortens the muscles and hampers rehabilitation.
Our treatment guide provides expert advice on how to reduce pain and inflammation and create the right conditions to accelerate the healing process.
Post-acute phase rehabilitation involves the staged introduction of isometric, concentric and eccentric stretches, scar tissue removal and proprioceptive exercises to strengthen the connective tissues to achieve a full range of movement and prevent re-injury.
Ankle Sprains respond well to self-treatment and conservative care.
Our treatment guide provides comprehensive tips and advice to achieve a full recovery in the shortest possible time.
If you follow the treatment guide correctly and are diligent with the rehabilitation programme complications are unlikely.
Without correct rehabilitation, there may be residual stiffness and reduced range of movement. The surrounding ligaments often remain weak and result in ankle instability which increases the likelihood of rolling the ankle again.
The incorporation of simple proprioceptive exercises is just one of the techniques contained in our treatment guide to help prevent re-injury.
