Ankle Sprain Treatment
When you sprain your ankle, the foot usually turns inward, resulting in a strain to the outside of the ankle. Ankle sprains usually involve swelling, pain, and tenderness.
Early sprained ankle treatment can help facilitate a rapid recovery as well as long term healing. Even though the pain and swelling will resolve over time, recurrences are common without proper treatment and rehabilitation.
In the acute state, an ankle sprain treatment provides relief, and swelling and pain can be reduced via electrical muscle stimulation and/or ultrasound. Bracing, compression bandages, and splints can also be used during ankle sprain recovery.Instruction in therapeutic exercises can help to rehabilitate the muscles, ligaments, and ankle joint. The purpose is to strengthen the area and prevent re-injury.
If you’ve sprained your ankle, ensure that you get the proper treatment. Contact Moramarco Chiropractic for a consultation.
