Sprained Ankle, Plantar Fasciitis and Broken Metatarsals are common sports injuries that affect the ankle and foot. Sprained ankle symptoms include ankle pain, weakness, swelling and 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 perform proprioception exercises are included in the content section at the bottom of this page.

Plantar Fasciitis is a common foot problem that produces heel pain and pain in the sole of the foot.
