Ankle Pains and Physiotherapy Singapore

Most patients with ankle pains is often due to an ankle sprain or injury to structures inside the ankle joint itself. The ankle joint is made of a few structures such as bones, ligaments and tendons, of which any can be injured and cause the ankle pain. Most of the time, injuries occurs when the feet is fully flat and there is a sharp side-ways movement that over-strains the ligament at the side of the ankle.

Pain varies from the level of injury, patient's pain threshold and expectations - the more severe it is, the more severe the pain is. Pains that patients may experience includes throbbing, pulling, aching, burning, tearing or sharp pain, but this is not an exhaustive list.

When we're presented with a case of ankle pain and sprain, our physiotherapy team will assess and determine the root cause of the problem, and the best treatment for it. Often we take the pain away first with cold therapy to decrease inflammation and swelling, followed by ultrasound to accelerate healing and then followed by gentle range-of-motion exercises. We may also prescribe a splint for you to wear to protect the injury. If the ankle sprain is healing well, we will start with gentle resistive exercises within 2 - 4 weeks and gradually to more intensive exercises.
