Physiotherapy treatments and services can help address the immediate pain and discomfort while helping address the underlying causes of your ankle sprain. Our physiotherapists take the time to determine the causes for your ankle sprain to develop a personalized treatment plan that best reflects your overall needs, objectives, and goals.


What Are Some Symptoms Of Ankle Sprains?

Pain is a common symptom associated with ankle sprains. You may notice pain when you attempt to stand, walk, and move. The pain could also be persistent and constant no matter whether you are mobile or sedentary. Aside from pain, you could experience bruising and swelling in the affected area.


What Are Some Causes Of Ankle Sprains?

One common cause for ankle sprains is because the muscles, ligaments, and tendons in the feet are not strong enough to support the associated movement. Another common cause could be the result of an accident of some sort.

How Long Does It Take Before I Notice Any Results?

Most patients report short-term relief after a single massage therapy treatment. However, continued treatments provide a cumulative effect to bring optimal results. Regular treatments can help strengthen and tone the body, reduce tension, improve blood flow, and reduce unnecessary strains on muscles and connective tissues. Furthermore, ongoing massage therapy can be beneficial to reduce fatigue, increase energy levels, and provide more restful sleep.
