Sprains & Strains Treatments at Monmouth Pain


Ankle sprains are among the most prevalent sports injuries often documented for accounting for 40% of all athletic sports injuries. A sprain occurs when the ankle rolls, twists, or turns in a way that causes the ligaments to be forced beyond the normal range of motion causing the ligaments to stretch or tear. There are two types of ankle sprains:

  • Inversion Ankle Sprain – Foot falls inward causing outer ligaments to hyper-extend resulting in pain on the outside of the ankle.
  • Eversion Ankle Sprain – Foot twisted outwards causing the inner ligaments to hyper-extend resulting in pain on the inside of the ankle

Treatment for Sprained Ankle Symptoms at Monmouth Pain & Rehabilitation


Symptoms of an ankle sprain typically vary depending on the severity of the sprain, but often include the following:

  • Weight-bearing Pain
  • Tenderness to the touch
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • Instability


In addition to being the most common sports injury, over 40% of ankle sprains are recurrent as they are often without adequate treatment. While the symptoms of an ankle sprain can subside by using the RICE method (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) the damaged tendons and surrounding tissues might not return to optimal health before being required to perform. At Monmouth Pain, our comprehensive Ankle Sprain Treatment Program combines the work of our expert Physical TherapistsChiropractorsAcupuncturists, and Sports Medicine Specialists to restore the tendons, ligaments, and muscles within the ankle to peak performance to eliminate recurring injuries to the ankle.
