Ankle sprain Archives - Hirofizikal


Physical therapy is an indispensable part of medicine, which deals with treatment, rehabilitation, as well as improving the functionality of the entire organism. The goal of physical therapy is for the person to regain mobility, as well as to return to daily activities. Physical therapy is used to treat injuries, as well as diseases that affect the entire locomotor apparatus (bones, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments). The therapy itself acts on bones, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, joints, so it has a very wide range of effects. Regardless of whether your shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, neck, spine, knee, ankle hurts, whether it is an acute, subacute or chronic illness, physical therapy is an indispensable part of treatment. In addition to the effects on the locomotor system, physical therapy also affects the cardiovascular, respiratory, and digestive tracts.

Physical therapy has several forms of application, the most common being electrotherapy, kinesitherapy, laser therapy, magnetotherapy, ultrasound therapy, tekar therapy, various forms of massage. In addition to forms of physical therapy, the Hiro-Fizikal clinic also uses chiropractic, popularly known as chiropractic, a manual non-invasive method (for patients who are afraid of manipulation), acupuncture, pain mesotherapy, as well as a physiatrist examination service at the request of the patient.


Ankle sprain requires adequate care. Many years of experience have shown that most patients do not perceive this problem in a serious way, but think that their problem is solved when the pain stops. However, this is a mistake that can later have far-reaching consequences, such as joint instability or other chronic changes in soft structures, algodystrophic syndrome (Sudek’s disease).

When does joint distortion (sprain) occur?

• It most often occurs during sports activities
• Walks on uneven ground
• Sudden changes in the direction of movement
• Landing on the ground
• A sudden fall where the wrist twists

Why do ankle sprains occur?

When the joint is in a position that does not correspond to its physiological position, and the tendons, ligaments and muscles fail to maintain the joint, i.e. to return it to the physiological position, the joint luxates (moves from its position), and when the foot contacts the ground, due to strong pressure, an injury occurs, i.e. ankle sprains.

Symptoms that the patient has:

• Pain
• Swelling
• Limited movement
• Impaired or completely disabled movement

What the patient can do as a form of first aid:

• Ice the injured segment
• Leg elevation
• Rest
• Bandaging, compression bandage, depending on what is nearby
• Moderate leaning, if possible it is best not to lean on the injured leg

An objective examination can determine:

• Determine by palpation the most intense place of pain, or several of them, depending on the degree of injury
• Swelling
• Is the skin cyanotic
• Is there inflammation
• Range of motion test
• Assessment of joint stability
• Is it necessary to send the patient for further diagnostics (ultrasound, x-ray, magnetic resonance)
• Orthopedic examination, or another specialist
