Ankle complaints

Ankle complaints can quickly develop and most people experience it at some point in their lives. Most ankle injuries occur after a bruise or sprain. This causes the ligaments to become overstretched, torn or torn.

Ankle ligaments can be quite a problem, especially for athletes. Short, quick movements increase the risk of spraining your ankle. Ankle complaints can also occur as a result of trauma, such as a fall.

What to do if you have ankle pain?

Depending on the severity of the damage, there are different things you can do for an ankle injury. If you have pain in your ankle, it is important that you rest to prevent the pain and irritation from getting worse. Tape can provide extra peace of mind. 


With a mild sprain, the pain in your ankle will go away on its own. However, it is important that you keep a close eye on your ankle (the pain and swelling). This is to prevent your complaints from getting worse again when you start exercising more.


Are you in doubt? Then it is always a good idea to contact your physiotherapist. 


In some cases with severe damage, repair surgery is required. In the recovery phase, coaching by a physiotherapist is crucial: only with the right guidance will you learn to properly load your ankle again. This affects your recovery and the risk of the injury occurring again.
