SPRAINED ANKLE REHABILITATION

Physical Therapy for Sprained Ankle Rehabilitation


A sprained ankle is one of the most common injuries that can occur from both sports and everyday activities. While almost 50% of athletic injuries are the result of a sprained ankle, it’s easy to sprain your ankle while running, walking, or simply taking an improper step down a flight of stairs. An ankle sprain is caused by an overstretching of the ligaments surrounding your ankle. Ankle sprains can range in severity, from a mild overstretch of the ligament to a severe sprain where the entire ligament is torn. It is common for sprains to reoccur later in life once you have experienced an initial sprain. That is why it is important to receive ankle physical therapy in Utah to avoid future injury.

If you have sprained your ankle, it is important to start physical therapy and weight bearing activities within 72 hours of your injury to shorten your recovery time. If you are looking for physical therapy in Utah for your sprained ankle, Rock Run is here to help. Our physical therapists are experienced in treating ankle sprains and can have you back to your normal range of activity in no time. Our therapists will conduct a thorough physical assessment of your injury to determine the severity and to see if any other bones or ligaments have been affected. If possible, we will have you begin walking on your ankle right away. Crutches may be necessary for more severe sprains. A combination of weight bearing, stretching, and balancing exercises will be utilized in your rehabilitation program.

For most patients, the outlook for a sprained ankle injury is positive. While sprained ligaments are usually prone to future injury, you can continue strengthening exercises for up to 6 months or a year after your ankle heals. This will increase your muscle endurance and prevent future injury. Sometimes, ankle sprains can occur as a result of poor walking or running form. The physical therapists of Rock Run can help you improve your form to prevent any future injuries. When it comes to physical therapy in Utah, you can count on the professionals of Rock Run. An ankle sprain may seem like a big injury as they are often very painful. But with the proper care, you’ll be back to your old self in no time!

I injured my left ACL racing BMX bikes at age 40 (not smart). My surgeon replaced my ACL and I started PT here shortly after. I had my first appointment with Brenda and she did a wonderful job listening to my concerns and most importantly my goals. She beat my knee the first visit, which was VERY unpleasant but necessary. Fast forward 6 weeks, and I have my full range of motion back. I can golf, ride bikes with my kids, and walk all day. When I finally make it big BMX racing in my 40’s, I’ll have a Rock Run sticker on my helmet.

I came to Rock Run PT from another PT office because I was not progressing fast enough. When I came to Rock Run PT and told them my issue, they started me out with small weights and my progression started. I improved my strength in my arm and shoulder. This was after the 8th surgery and with one arm. I had to improve my strength so I could do my daily workout in my 1/5th acre garden.

I was being seen for a torn MCL. Josh did a great job evaluating the issue and then designing a recovery program. I feel my knee is much stronger than before the injury. Everyone on the staff has been great. Very accommodating and understanding. Thank you for everything.

My experience at Rock Run has been amazing. When I first started coming to PT, I had a lot of pain in my hips and had a hard time walking/running.  After working with Brittnee, she showed me things I could do to strengthen my muscles. I have never felt better and my hips feel great. I can go on walks and runs now without pain!

I have had such an amazing experience at Rock Run. Everyone is so nice and I am so happy with how much happier I am with my ankle motion. Josh and Amanda have done such a great job at pushing me and helping me do things that I never would have been able to do on my own. I definitely struggled with walking and moving around before but I am moving much better and can do so much more. I am so thankful for everything that the employees at Rock Run have helped me accomplish. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is in need of Physical Therapy.

Very positive experience all around. At the beginning, I had a lot of pain when performing basic activities, like walking or going up stairs. I was very skeptical about the benefits that physical therapy could provide.

The exercises performed here took my body out of the comfort zone and were very awkward at first. However, after three weeks, I have seen amazing improvement. The pain level in my daily life and activities has dropped significantly and I can now say that I feel healthy again.

When I first came to physical therapy, I was having difficulty functioning at all because of my back. After two visits I was feeling so much better! I could not believe the difference! I loved that all the staff were focused on teaching me how to take care of my back, so I could do everything on my own. I even graduated early because my back was so much better!
