Ankle Sprain and Physiotherapy Singapore

For appointments/enquiries, please SMS/Call/WhatsApp xx

Ankle sprains are one the most common injuries we treat in our physiotherapy clinic. Most of the time, they are either caused by sports injuries, or simply due to a slip. It is soft tissues damage around and in the ankle, more of the time by an inversion injury where the ankle is forcibly twisted inwards and into the body, or an eversion injury where the ankle is twisted outwardly.

Due to the structure of the bones in the ankle, most of the time, inversion injuries occurs, and this type of ankle sprain results to injury and damage to the lateral ligaments on the outside part of the patient's ankle.

Common symptoms following a sprain are as followed, but note that the intensity or duration is dependent on the severity of the injury.

  1. First degree sprain - patient will experience pain when the foot is actively or passively turned inwards and/or outwards. Damaged areas will be tender and sensitive to touch.

  2. Second degree sprain - same as above in terms of painful with motion, but the pain experienced will be more intense; as well as moderate swelling and painful with walking short distances.

  3. Third degree sprain - often at this kind of ankle sprain, patients will have excruciating pain and walking is almost impossible. There is often accompanying substantial edema and swelling, as well as a deformity if the ankle had been dislocated.

During the acute stage of the injury the patient must not put too much weight on the injured ankle, so walking on the ankle should not be done whenever possible. We will train the patient how to walk with crutches or walking frame with the injured ankle non weight bearing until it is ready for any weights on it.

If a fracture is suspected, we will inform the orthopedic surgeons to carry out an X-Ray in an A&E (accident and emergency) department of your local hospital.

To relieve the swelling and pain, we may use cold therapy; electrotherapy such as ultrasound therapy may be used to bolster and accelerate the healing process of the injured ligaments. Once the patient is allowed to weight bear and walk on the injured ankle, we will start more active physiotherapy intervention.
