it is because of the ligamentous injury and creates pain and swelling . ain and swelling subsides with time leaves the muscle weakness which takes time and recovers only by the exercises done by the physiotherapist.
go to a physiotherapist and take the treatment. Ultrasonic therapy helps in healing of ligament and muscle stretched or inflamed,heat(wax) therapy increases blood circulation and TENS helps in relieving pain,Exercises will increase the muscle strength.Do it for at least 2-3 weeks.You will get the relief for sure... take care.
Healing of any injury will not be completed unless u take few sessions of physiotherapy. As every healing tissue has a pattern of healing that only therapy can speed up. Visit www.physiotherapistdelhi.in to know more.
Most likely ur diagnosis is anterior talofibular ligament sprain which is quite common in ankle sprain. It takes arund 4-5 weeks to get healed.. U shuld avoid excessive weight bearing and shuld use good footwear for walking. Take tablet signoflam 3 times a day go reduce the swelling....
Hi Ankle Spain can be divided into three grades - Grades 1, 2 and 3 in increasing order of severity. The the grades behave differently in relation to one another.
In general minor sprains can heal in 2 weeks, but more severe ones can take 6 weeks to 3 months to completely heal.
Apply ice packs generously, avoid jerky movements/ kicking, use a crepe bandage. These can help allow your ligaments to heal.
Hope that helps,
Hello there.... Outcomes for ankle sprains are generally quite good. With proper treatment, most patients are able to resume their day-to-day activities after a period of time.
Most importantly, successful outcomes are dependent upon patient commitment to rehabilitation exercises. Incomplete rehabilitation is the most common cause of chronic ankle instability after a sprain.
