Sprained Ankles- immediate care.

Recently I have had  a few queries regarding the treatment of sprained ankles .A few clients have  rung  to make an appointment in a couple of weeks  as they think they need to rest it… The acute ankle sprain is better if treated immediately with ice and elevation and possibly a light strapping. Also it is important to retain the muscle strength and range of joint range where possible. So an early appointment is better to help return to activity as soon as possible.

Obviously if there is any likelihood of a fracture then Medical help is to be sought immediately.
