Exercises for Ankle

Dec 05th, 2020


I have had a problem with my ankle for the last couple of months regarding quite a severe sprain to my ankle. I have recently been to the physio and he has recommended and given me some exercises to do to begin my recovery to where I was before. It is only the second day since our meeting and the ankle has begun to swell to a similar stage to the size it was after the original injury.

Should I continue doing the exercises or rest it to allow the swelling to go again?

Hi William

Do you think the swelling is attributable to the rehab, and was there a specific incident or could this be just coincidental?

What is the rehab focusing on? Getting more range, improving strength or getting better control and balance…could be a combo of all 3 but was there anything that you’ve done that was extreme and felt dodgy??

If yes to the above then give it 48 hours rest then return to your rehab – focus on form and quality.

Let me know how you go…
