What is a sprained ankle?
An ankle sprain sometimes known as a twisted ankle happens when one or more of the ankle ligaments supporting the ankle joint is overstretched or torn as a result of the foot rolling onto it’s side when landed awkwardly during physical activity. Symptoms are: pain in the ankle especially on movement tenderness, ankle swelling, trouble bearing weight or walking on the ankle & bruising. An untreated & poorly rehabilitated ankle sprain can lead to more future ankle injuries.
Sprained ankle treatment
Your physiotherapist will physically assess & test to diagnose grade of ankle sprain, use hands on physiotherapy, shockwave therapy, dry needling and taping. Advise re treatment for pain & swelling. Provide ankle strength exercises via our prescription software Salaso. Prescribe ankle supports such as ankle brace, ankle strap.

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
