“An ankle sprain is the most common acute sporting injury, accounting for about 14% of all sporting injuries. Among these, 80% are ligamentous sprains.”
How long does an ankle injury take to repair?
Ankle injuries can vary from anywhere between 3-12 weeks depending on the severity of the injury. In more serious cases there can be a complete rupture of the ligaments in the ankle which can mean surgery, this is a rare occurrence. If you would like to read our blog, please click here
What can I do at home to reduce my pain and swelling?
There are a few things you can begin to do as soon as you have an ankle injury. All of which should be done within the first few days of an ankle injury, the sooner you can begin your rehabilitation, the better:
- Ice pack – Place some ice in a cold and wet towel and wrap it around your ankle for 20 minutes
- Keep your ankle elevated above the level of your heart

Why do I have pain in my achilles region?
Achilles pain usually arises due to an increase or change in training volume, training intensity, type of exercise and can even be related to things such as your training surface and body weight. If you have been experiencing pain in the achilles region for several weeks it is important to reduce your training volume and intensity immediately.
The sooner you do this, the less chance it may turn into a chronic injury. Long term achilles pain can be reversed however, will take significantly longer depending on your chosen sport. Careful examination by a Physiotherapist should be done followed by commencing a corrective exercise program. To read about our Physiotherapists, click here.
