The no win no fee* in Ockley team have dealt with a large number of ankle injury claims. These are commonly caused in sporting accidents. However, you do not have to be an olympic athlete to damage your ankles. Each year, over two million people in the UK receive treatment for ankle injuries, and this statistic is unsurprising given that our ankles bear the weight of the entire body on a regular basis.
Many people ask us what the most common type and causes of ankle injuries are. The two most common types of ankle injuries are strains and sprains. Strains occur when your muscles or tendons become damaged, while sprains occur when your ligaments become stretched or torn. Other types of injuries include dislocations, breaks and infections.
Sprains and strains of the ankles typically occur following trips on uneven pavements. Fractures, on the other hand, are commonly sustained after falling down the stairs. Regardless of the way in which you have sustained your ankle injury, you should seek immediate medical advice. If your ankle injury is severe, a doctor may request an X-ray to look for damaged bones. Depending on your diagnosis, you may require:
- Anti-inflammatory medications;
- Sports massage;
- Physiotherapy; and/or
- Immobilisation of the ankle.
After the ankle injury, you may need rehabilitation. Most mild ankle injuries take between two and six weeks to heal. However, severe injuries may take up to twelve weeks to heal. In some cases, you may be required to undergo an extensive period of physiotherapy.
