The treatment of an ankle sprain through physiotherapy typically involves several stages, focusing on reducing pain, swelling, restoring normal function, and preventing re-injury.

Initial Assessment

A thorough assessment by a physiotherapist helps determine the severity of the sprain, identifying specific structures affected and assessing the range of motion, strength, and stability of the ankle.

PRICE Protocol

With the help of ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or laser therapy, pain and inflammation can be managed.

Range of Motion Exercises

Strength Training

Proprioception and Balance Training

Functional Activities

Gait Training
