Sprained my ankle – What should I do now?

One of the more common injuries we treat is ankle sprains. The big problem with this injury is that often in an effort to return to sport as quickly as possible, many players / athletes will neglect to fully rehab the ankle correctly. This in turn may lead to ankle ligament scarring / damage and subsequent ankle (particularly lateral) instability. The initial management and longer term rehabilitation of an ankle sprain is therefore extremely important. Our physiotherapists can assist you at all stages of the rehab process, the use of the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) principle is a very good place to start. R (Rest) you need to leave the field, or stop walking on it. You need to rest it for the first 48-72 hours. No alcohol or exercise. I (ICE) you should apply ice to the area. Place the ice in a tea towel or cover your leg with a cloth to avoid ice burn. We recommend 20mins on and 2 hours off for the first 24-48 hours. C (Compression) Use an elastic bandage around your ankle, it helps to reduce the swelling. Be sure it’s not too tight, you should be able to move your toes and they should not feel numb. The bandage will need to be adjusted regularly over the first 24-72 hours for comfort. E (Elevation) you need to place the ankle above the level of your heart; this helps reduce the swelling and fluid removal. Remember also to keep the ankle moving, the muscle in the back of your lower leg acts as a pump to remove swelling, therefore, it’s important to keep the foot moving foot up and down. If however, you are unable to bear weight on the foot then we would strongly recommend that you attend your local A&E for an X-ray to exclude a fracture.
