I Hurt my Ankle, What to do?

Mild ankle injuries can be self-managed with some rest, by applying ice and compressing the affected area, and by keeping your foot elevated.

However, if symptoms don’t resolve after a few days, it is best to seek help from your specialised physiotherapist or doctor who will give you the appropriate ankle injury treatment and help you recover the safest way possible.

How Can Physiotherapy Help with Ankle Pain Management and Ankle Injuries?

Your physiotherapist specialised in ankle injuries and sports physiotherapy will assess you first of all to determine the nature of your ankle pain and create a personalised treatment plan to help you recover safely.

Depending on what you need, your ankle physio will elaborate this plan including various techniques such as mobilisation, soft-tissue massages, stretching, K-taping and strengthening exercises to help you manage your symptoms on your own in between sessions and fasten your recovery.

As our physiotherapists are specialised in sports physio, sports injury and personal training, they will also be able to guide you and advise you on when and how you should get back to a daily sports activity, with the right movements and safe methods to be sure your ankle doesn’t get injured again.

What Causes Ankle Pain?

Ankle pain and ankle injury are very common, often caused by an acute or overuse trauma, a medical condition or nerve damage.

The Most Common Conditions that Cause Ankle Pain Are:

  • Ankle sprain
  • Ankle strain
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Flat feet which brings ankle unbalance
  • Ankle fracture
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Achilles tendinosis
  • Chronic lateral ankle pain
  • Bursitis
  • Ankle infection

Do I have an Ankle Strain or Ankle Sprain?

Ankle strains and ankle sprains are very similar as they affect the soft tissues, but they result from injuries happening in different areas of the body.

Ankle sprain is defined by ankle ligaments being overstretched, torn or twisted. Ligaments are fibrous tissue around joints that connect bones to each other.

Ankle strain, on the other side, results from overstretching, tearing and twisting muscles and tendons. Tendons are cords of fibrous tissue that connect the muscles to the bones.

If you are not entirely sure whether your ankle is strained or sprained, your ankle physiotherapist will be able to assess and determine the nature of the injury, and what treatment is best for it.

Is my Ankle broken?

A broken ankle is the most severe case of ankle injury and will require specific medical tests from your doctor. Broken ankle symptoms can show as follows:

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

What to do to heal a broken Ankle?

Broken ankle treatment will firstly need complete immobility of your ankle joint, with the help of a cast or protective boot. In more severe cases and depending on the broken bone(s), surgery might be needed.

Once your ankle is healed, you will need help from a physiotherapist to strengthen your ankle muscles and get back to a full range of motion the safest way possible. Whether it is post ankle surgery or just following an ankle injury that did not need any operation, your physiotherapist will plan a treatment program to help you regain mobility of your ankle.

You must seek help from a qualified physiotherapist to treat your ankle, as specific manipulation, stretching and strengthening exercises will be tailored to your needs in order to get back safely into using your ankle and foot again.

5 Tips to prevent Ankle Injuries

Ankle injuries are quite common in everyday life and most specifically sports like running or football for example. It is possible however to help decrease the risk of ankle injury by following these advices:

  • Warm up and stretching your ankle: in general, at the start of your day or before any physical activity, light stretches can help warm up your ankle muscles and avoid the risk of injury. Before any sports, it is as well advised to warm up slightly with a little run.
  • Start your physical activity gradually: building up the muscle strength of your ankle by slowly increasing your physical activity and not go crazy in one-go will help build ankle stability and mobility.
  • Choose the right trainers: good quality shoes for any circumstances are important. A stable shoe for a stable ankle.
  • Be careful what you run on: watch out for uneven surface (rocky, gravely) and hills
  • Get help from a sports physiotherapist: ankle strain can be easily avoided with the right methods. Seek help from a sports physio to create a strong routine with safe techniques to prevent from ankle injury. From exercises, stretching, advices on your daily activities to proper manipulation, treatments, mobilisation – your physiotherapist specialised in ankle injuries will help you every step of the way.
