Ankle sprains are the most common acute sporting injury - representing up to 45% of all acute injuries. However, they are less innocuous than you think. Up to 73% of acute ankle sprains go on to be recurrent, with high levels of associated pain and withdrawal from activity.

It is therefore imperative that ankle sprains are managed well to prevent this outcome. There is good evidence to support treatment and rehabilitation programs to minimise the risk of re-injury. This rehabilitation program may include exercises such as range of motion, strength, control and balance exercises to restore optimal function following your injury.

You are in charge of your recovery, and we would love to help guide you in the best way to achieve long term improvement.
