Ankle Sprain Prevention


Ankle pain can be triggered by many conditions, most of which are associated with structural damage to the articulation. Ankle injuries range from the mildest twists and sprains to severe fractures. Most of them can be prevented by protecting the articulation, working on your technique, and strengthening your ankle if you’re an athlete.

You might also need rehabilitation and strengthening exercises if you have a condition known as chronic ankle instability, which is seen in young patients and older adults. Treating ankle instability is essential to prevent future ankle injuries and ankle pain.

Another thing to keep in mind is that some systemic conditions can affect your ankles, such as gout and arthritis. It is difficult to find preventative measures against these conditions as they depend on your genes and their involvement with your environment.
