Sprained Ankle, Plantar Fasciitis and a Broken Metatarsal are common sports injuries that affect the ankle and foot. Sprained ankle symptoms include ankle pain, ankle weakness, ankle swelling and ankle instability, which is a feeling of ‘giving way’. Physiotherapy treatment for sprained ankle rehabilitation involves techniques to reduce ankle swelling and restore ankle range of movement. Proprioception exercises to improve balance and stability are very important and full details of how to do proprioception exercises are included in the PhysioRoom.com Injury A-Z.
Plantar Fasciitis is a common foot problem that produces heel pain and pain in the sole of the foot. An assessment of footwear and biomechanics by a physiotherapist at a sports injury clinic is an important component of the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis. Other treatment methods for heel pain, including new techniques in minimally invasive surgery for Plantar Fasciitis are detailed in the PhysioRoom.com Injury A-Z.
