Ankle Sprain

Stepping Back with Confidence: Physiotherapy for Ankle Sprains at Medace Clinic

Ankle sprains are a common injury, often occurring during everyday activities or sports. The pain and instability caused by a sprain can significantly impact your mobility. At Medace Clinic, we understand the importance of getting you back on your feet quickly and safely. Our team of experienced physiotherapists offers personalized physiotherapy programs to manage pain, improve ankle function, and prevent future sprains.


Understanding Ankle Sprains:

An ankle sprain occurs when the ligaments connecting the bones in your ankle joint overstretch or tear. The severity of a sprain can range from mild (grade 1) to severe (grade 3), depending on the extent of ligament damage.

Symptoms of an Ankle Sprain:

  • Pain on the outer or inner side of the ankle, especially when bearing weight
  • Swelling and inflammation around the ankle joint
  • Bruising
  • Difficulty walking or putting weight on the affected ankle
  • Limited range of motion in the ankle joint

Benefits of Physiotherapy for Ankle Sprains:

Physiotherapy offers a non-invasive and effective approach to managing ankle sprains, promoting healing, and preventing future injuries. Here are some key benefits:

  • Pain Relief: Techniques like manual therapy, modalities, and specific exercises can help reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Improved Mobility and Range of Motion: Stretching and strengthening exercises enhance flexibility and range of motion in the ankle joint.
  • Reduced Swelling and Inflammation: Techniques like cryotherapy or compression therapy can promote healing and reduce swelling.
  • Strengthening the Supporting Muscles: Exercises targeting the muscles around the ankle joint improve stability and support, preventing future sprains.
  • Balance and Gait Training: Regaining balance and proper walking mechanics are crucial for preventing falls and re-injury.
  • Faster Healing and Return to Activity: Physiotherapy can accelerate the healing process and help you return to your daily activities and sports participation sooner.

Physiotherapy Treatment for Ankle Sprains at Medace Clinic:

Our physiotherapists will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose the severity of your ankle sprain. This may involve a physical examination, discussing your symptoms, and observing your gait. Based on the assessment, they will design a personalized treatment plan that may include:

  • Protection and Rest: In the initial stages, RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) therapy is often recommended to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  • Manual therapy: Techniques like massage and joint mobilization can improve flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and promote healing.
  • Strengthening exercises: Targeted exercises for the calf muscles, peroneal muscles, and other ankle stabilizers improve stability and support the ankle joint.
  • Balance and proprioception training: Exercises that challenge your balance and help regain awareness of your ankle position in space can significantly reduce the risk of future sprains.
  • Modalities: Ultrasound or electrical stimulation may be used to promote healing and reduce pain.
  • Taping or Bracing: In some cases, ankle taping or a brace may be used to provide support and stability during the healing process.

I had visited Medace Clinic in Kothanur for my Tennis Elbow issue in my right hand. I was recommended for Physiotherapy treatment. I underwent this treatment for 4 days in the clinic (daily visit for treatment) and was given few exercises to be done at home post that. I got a huge relief from this treatment. The Physiotherapist was very good. She had a good knowledge and was able to get to the exact pain and provided the treatment. My pain has reduced drastically and I am able to do the daily activities without any pain now. Will be joining back to gym as well in 4 to 5 days.

We consulted Dr. Geetika throughout my wife’s pregnancy. Without question, she is a gem of a person, soft spoken and very down to earth. The best thing about her is that you can message her with the slightest doubt on WhatsApp and she is available to respond. She will take the time to listen to you and provide you with the most effective advice to address your current situation and prevent future issues. She is very very easy to talk to. Never prescribed us any unnecessary tests or medicines. She guided us in detail at every step week after week, month after month. We are so happy and proud for having done this journey with her.
Dr. Noel Kumar at Medace Clinic is an exceptional doctor who truly cares about his patients. He has been treating my todler son for the past three months, he has recovered from his femur fracture completely and I have seen a remarkable improvement in his condition. His expertise in the field is very evident in the way he diagnosed, operated and provided post operative care. Dr. Noel takes the time to explain everything in detail and answer any questions we have. He is always available to address our concerns and provide us with the best possible care. The clinic is well-equipped and staffed by friendly professionals who go above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Noel and Medace Clinic to anyone looking for quality orthopedic care.
