Ankle Pain is a common condition caused by sprain to the ankle. This is normally as a result of the ankle moving beyond its range of movement resulting in a tear or stretch to the angle ligaments. Other reasons for ankle pain could also be due to a broken ankle, archilles tendon rapture, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout and tendinitis.
Physiotherapy can help with Ankle Pain by
- Accessing and determining cause of ankle pain
- Pain management
- Strengthening the related muscles
- Healing the ligament & tendon condition
- Restore the range of movement back to normal
