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!

— Terry E., Posted April 20, 2020

This was my very first injury in my life. As scary and unsure about how things can turn out, it was nice to have Brenda and her team be so kind and informative. I was able to schedule around work and get in when needed. I would have liked more goal and advancements in treatments from day to day, but other than that its been a great time!

I had a great experience with Rock Run Physical Therapy. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff. They took the time to get to know me and I felt like I was always in good hands. The physical therapists helped me become more informed with my shoulder issues, and helped me in making decisions for further treatment.

Great visit Consistent pain that was present when I first came here is now gone. Hopefully with the exercises I have been given for home, the pain will not return.
