Prevalence, Impact and Long-term Consequences of Lateral Ankle Sprains
This academic article explains how ankle sprains create ongoing issues on the body if left untreated, which may result in further sprains and changes up the kinetic chain resulting in pain and injury almost anywhere else in the body. At Backs Etc, we see this in practice every day: someone’s ongoing back pain or knee issue resulting from an untreated sprain. They may seem trivial but in all likelihood, without treatment, your ankle function will be changed permanently. So if you have an ankle sprain in the past, or your ankle just feels ‘funky’, make an appointment to get assessed. You may be surprised how appropriate treatment can change your whole body.
