If you have just gone through your ankle, it is important to give the ankle rest so that it can begin to recover. For the first seven days, you are in what is called the inflammation phase. In this phase, the body starts clearing damaged tissue and starts making new tissue. In this phase, the RICE principle is followed. The RICE principle stands for; rest, ice, putting the leg up and possibly applying a pressure bandage. After a week, the body is in full recovery and exercises to strengthen the ankle can be carefully started. Exercising to regain ankle strength and stability is tremendously important to prevent new injuries. The physical therapists at Fysiofitaal are able to help and guide you during rehabilitation from inversion trauma. Depending on the severity of the trauma, something can be said about the recovery of the ankle. Generally, the ankle recovers quickly and if properly supervised, you will be rid of your ankle injury within 6 weeks.
