Ankle Sprain Physiotherapy | Move Physiotherapy Fremantle
Ankle sprains are some of the most common injuries presenting to physiotherapy. Most occur after landing awkwardly during running or jumping activities especially on uneven surfaces.
The sprained ankle occurs when the ligaments supporting the ankle are overstretched. These sprains can range in severity from the mild sprain through to complete ruptures of the ligament, avulsion fractures and broken bones. The ligaments on the outside of the ankle are the most commonly injured. These ligaments are your Anterior Talofibular Ligament (ATFL) and your Calcaneofibular Ligament (CFL).

We offer longer appointment times to comprehensively assess your pain, provide a detailed diagnosis and assess contributing factors that may be exacerbating pain with your recent injury.
