High Ankle Sprain-Day 3
That's what happened here, but we survived it. If you can exudate the substrate out of the ankle mortise with good acute care and early minimal weight bearing exercise, the injury should look something like this. Aquatic therapy is particularly useful because of the hydrostatic pressure and weightless environment, so if you have access to a pool use it! With the tape job described in a previous post, this athlete is already ambulating without an antalgic gait! Ahhhh youth.
