Sprained Ankle Treatment
A sprained ankle is the #1 most common sports related injury, but, you don’t have be an athlete to get an ankle sprain. People from all walks of life and all ages sprain their ankles too. In fact, there are about 25,000 sprained ankles a day.
There are three main sprained ankle types. By far the most common is known as an inversion sprain. That’s when your ankle sprains on the outside of the foot. There are also medial and high ankle sprains, but those only account for about ten percent of ankle sprains.
Now, there are also three different grades of ankle sprain… one, two and three. The very short version goes like this… one is mild; two is pretty bad and three is very severe. Depending on the grade of your sprain and how you choose to treat your ankle, it can take anywhere from a few days to many months for your ankle to heal.
Now, here’s where it gets interesting… After a sprain, you have two choices. You can follow the old ideology of rest and ice and wait for your ankle to try and heal itself. Even with a mild grade one sprain, it can still take weeks or even months to fully heal. And a grade three sprain can take up to a year or longer. The main reason for this is due to the fact that rest and ice do not rehab the ankle properly. We have seen through a variety of clinical studies that ice actually STOPS the healing process and rest will never strengthen or stabilize the ankle joint enough to get it back to full health. For more on this, please read: Ice a sprained ankle? and Rest a sprained ankle?
The other option is to follow a much more clinically effective and proactive approach. A sprained ankle treatment should allow the body to heal itself in the most efficient manner. That requires a gentle, but effective rehab program that will reduce swelling and bruising naturally, while also increasing strength and stability in the ankle. This has the combined effect of healing the ankle faster and lowering the risk of re-injury.

Typical results are pain free walking in about 3 – 7 days and significant improvement in the strength and stability of your ankles, which means a much lower risk of future sprains.

Here is what you can expect from using HEM Ankle Rehab:
- Your ankle will heal much faster > typical results: pain free in 3 -7 days (R.I.C.E. can take 4 – 8 weeks or longer).
- You will not experience residual pain, stiffness and weakness. Instead, you will experience significantly increased strength and healthy range of motion in the ankles.
- Since, your ankles will be stronger and more stable, you will be at a lower risk of ankle sprains without the need for braces, wraps and/or tape.
- Your overall performance will increase (speed, quickness, agility, vertical jump) because your feet, ankles and calves are the springboard your body uses to move.
- Your knees and other joints will be protected, because your movement patterns will be normal and healthy. Stiff, weak and unstable ankles put other joints in the body at risk, because of altered and unhealthy movement patterns.
