Ankle Sprains

Ankle sprains are a really common injury – and a painful one!

Whether you are a runner or a sports player or just trying to get from A to B, a sprained ankle can really slow you down and imapact on your performance or ability to function.

Ankle sprains are a very common injury that occurs when you roll, twist or turn on your
ankle in an awkward way and this can overstretch or tear the ligaments that give your
ankle support. The most common ankle sprain involves an injury to the ligaments on
the outer side of the ankle resulting in bruising and swelling.

The recovery time for your ankle sprain will depend on the mechanism of injury and its severity. At Louth
Physiotherapy we will be able to assess your ankle and provide you with the most appropriate advice and treatment.

Our Physios provide expert treatment for ankle injuries to get you back to normal as quickly as possible.
