The Ankle Rehab Specialists in Brisbane
Sports Ankle Rehab
The Shoulder is a complex hinged synovial joint that can be injured via many different external or internal factors. This may be due to contact/collisions, an awkward landing, slippery surfaces, long-term degeneration, poor running/change of direction technique and general tightness amongst surrounding areas which affect its mobility. The ankle can suffer from many injuries such as the below:
Medial, High Ankle and Lateral Sprains
Achilles Tendon Rupture & Tendinopathy
Prevention is Key
The best advice we can give athletes who are starting to feel their ankles become consistently sore or are experiencing pinpointed pain is to ensure their recovery, load management and strength training is optimal. It is extremely important that athletes look after themselves and find that 30 minutes per day to keep their bodies healthy. In terms of preventing ankle injuries, managing total changes of direction, single leg jumping, running surfaces, consistent stretching/triggering or massage, cold water exposure and light aerobic exercise are all big factors in keeping your ankles healthy. Even looking at total Alcohol consumption and general food intake can all play a part in inflammatory responses which can aid the efficiency of recovery.
Sports Ankle Rehab
In terms of Ankle Rehab, whilst every injury is different we can provide a general rule of thumb for athletes suffering from ankle pain or a light strain. Firstly, consult a Physician to gauge how serious the injury is. From there, maintaining load through your muscles is very important. We highly encourage working through pain-free ranges which allow for controlled muscle contraction. Foot, Shin, Calf and Hip Muscles firing are important to maintain muscular balance and decrease the risk of further injuries later in Rehab. When specifically talking about Ankle Rehab your Proprioceptive ability, ankle range and reactive agility is our highest priority. Athletes with low proprioceptive control, weak foot intrinsics and poor movement mechanics will usually struggle with high load, repetition and intensity efforts. Your foot and ankle complex is the foundation for lower body strength and power. It provides a strong base for your entire body and is incredibly important to maintain to ensure a long, durable sporting career.
