Repetitive Sprained Ankles

Rolling your ankle repetitively may not be just an ankle issue…

Some patients who visit for physiotherapy tell us that they roll their ankles frequently. Head physiotherapist Pei-Jiun Cheah often finds that it comes from a rib alignment and control or a hip control issue.

Sprained Ankles are common in active children and teens. This includes those who may play a lot of sport, do lots of dancing or just walk normally.

Sometimes the ankle is rolled so often it may not hurt anymore. Each time the ankle is rolled the ligaments are stretched. Sprained Ankles Affect stability

Once ligaments are stretched the tissue doesn’t ‘retighten’. The stretched ligaments remain loose creating less stability.

To correct compromised ligaments, you need to strengthen the structures around the Repetitively Sprained Ankle and improve the stability of the trunk, pelvis and hip. This supports the ankle and helps it to stabilise more easily.

The Video below shows some signs to look for that indicate you may need to work on the stability of your ankle, hips and body.
