The Treatment and Prevention of Common Ankle Injuries

ankleThe ankle joint is made up of four bones (tibia, fibula, talus, and calcaneus) and ligament structures (anterior talofibular ligament, posterior talofibular ligament and the calcaneofibular ligament) that support the ankle stability.

All these structures and movements play an important part in ankle injury and rehabilitating the ankle joint after it has been injured. Many more structures should be considered when rehabilitating an injured joint. The ankle joint is predominantly considered having a major part to play in the stability through the knee and hip joint, and often these structures are not properly rehabilitated together within the injured ankle joint rehabilitation programme.
