Rolling the ankle. The most common leg injury treated in my practice. Often occurs in sports such as Netball, basketball or volleyball where the athlete ‘twists’ their ankle, or even just as simple as walking down the street and stepping into a hole or over a curb. The ankle swells up which can be mild or severe like a grapefruit size. There can be signficant tearing of muscle and ligaments that results in bleeding and bruising around the injury and can appear in the foot and toes, and should be reviewed by your Physiotherapist. You will require swelling control, appropriate exercises for rehabilitaion of strength and balance, but may even require crutches. This is why it is important to review with a Physiotherapist to properly assess your injury and provide an appropriate management plan.
