INJURY PREVENTION

Lateral Ankle Sprain

The ankle joint (aka sub-talar joint ) is the key to lower limb function, stability and shock absorption.


The joint is the articulation between the tibia, fibula and the foot and is subject to considerable forces. Twisting or “Going over' on your ankle causes lateral ankle sprain where the talus effectively tries to part company with the surrounding structure, tearing and rupturing the ligaments around the outside ankle.



How Profeet can help:

1
BIOMECHANICAL ANALYSIS

runner's knee analysis

We look for foot types and foot movements that make the ankle more prone to ankle sprains and check for footwear suitability for more susceptible ankles.

2
CUSTOM INSOLES

Can help maintain better lateral support both on the inside and outside of the feet and help stabilise the ankle joint.

3
FOOTWEAR

footwear

Correct support is needed to avoid these sprains and ensure that a shoe isn’t over supportive

4
EXERCISES

Balance training can help to strengthen and re-orientate the ankle joint to both prevent and recover from injury.
