Ankle sprain rehab video

Do you have a nagging lateral (outside) ankle sprain that just won’t go away?

The following information may help:

The anterior talofibular ligament is the most common ankle ligament injured. It is often sprained during an acute ankle inversion.
It is important to understand the stages of ankle sprain/injury rehab.  Such that too much or too little stress/exercise on the injured tissue is not recommended after the inflammation is gone.

That being said, often too little stress is often imposed on the anterior talofibular ligament while scar tissue accumulates, thus making it weaker and prone to reinjury.

Our recommendation is to try cross fibre friction massage (see below) for approximately 2 min everyday.  This will break down the scar tissue, which will reorganize in a stronger fashion with a focused prescribed exercise routine.
Make it a great day!
