RUNNING INJURIES – Ankle Sprains
Up to 70% of runners develop injuries every year. Most injuries result either from incorrect technique,inappropriate footwear, or because there is a structural imbalance in the body. Ankle sprains are common injuries to the ligaments of the ankle that are treated by our Sydney Chiropractor at Advanced Care Chiropractic.
The injury has varying degrees of severity, which may include inflammation, tearing of ligaments, or the complete rupture of ligaments. Depending on the severity, ankle sprain treatment may require rehabilitation treatments, or even surgery.
An accurate diagnosis of ankle injuries is needed as it is not always straight forward in determining the cause of the problem. Initially, our Sydney Chiropractor will assess the ankle joint, calf muscles, and achillies tendon, amongst other areas.
Ankle sprains are the most common injuries for athletes. And if not properly treated and rehabilitated, ankle sprains can leave behind weakness and instability in the joint long after the initial swelling disappears.
Early treatment is essential.
