Am I suffering from a high-ankle sprain?

High ankle sprainA high ankle sprain involves your anterior tibiofibular ligament and can be very painful. While this is not the most common ankle sprain seen it is definitely a common contender with individuals who are active and participate in contact sports.

Treatment for a high-ankle sprain initially consists of R.I.C.E. (Rest. Ice. Compression. Elevation). But once the initial inflammation subsides, it is important to seek the help of a physical therapist for optimal recovery.

Ligamentous injuries, such as a high-ankle sprain, take longer to recover than bone injuries such as a fracture. That makes early physical therapy intervention that much more important.
