Our treatment approach will depend primarily on the severity of the sprain and whether you have other injuries. Our goal will be to get you back to your favorite sport or activity and to reduce your chances of future injury.
We will examine your injury for any fractures. If you have a sprain, our physical therapists may recommend exercises and stretching to help you regain strength and range of motion. We may prescribe medications for your pain and inflammation and fit you for a brace — or, in rare cases, a cast or splint — to keep your ankle from moving during recovery.
