There are many causes of a high ankle sprain

High ankle sprains can happen during physical activities such as running, dancing, playing sports, or simply stepping off a curb incorrectly. To treat a high ankle sprain and ensure full joint mobility and stability in the long run, chiropractors often recommend exercises and stretches to strengthen the affected area. Physiotherapy can also be beneficial in reinforcing correct movement patterns and preventing further injury, while massage therapy helps manage pain by releasing muscle tension and increasing circulation to the region. With integrated chiropractic care incorporating these three components, individuals can effectively reduce their risk of further rear foot injuries.

What is a high ankle sprain?

A high ankle sprain is an injury to the ligaments that link the two bones of the lower leg, called tibia and fibula. This type of injury involves a more extensive injury than other sprains, such as a lateral or medial ankle sprain. High ankle sprains can cause pain in and around the joint, instability when walking, bruising, and swelling. Factors that can increase the risk of a high ankle sprain include activities that involve quick changes in direction or uneven surfaces.

What are the symptoms of a high ankle sprain?

Key symptoms of a high ankle sprain include physical indicators such as swelling and pain on the inner/upper side of the foot that is worse with movement, difficulty in performing weight-bearing activities, instability (or lack of control) when turning or twisting, and restricted ankle range of motion. Signs that are more difficult to detect could be pain and tenderness exacerbated by certain movements like pushing off from the toes when walking or pushing up from a seated position. Additionally, it may feel like there is increased tightness around the entire ankle– an overall decrease in flexibility compared to the uninjured foot.
