A 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.
