HSS Keeps Athletes On The Move With Ankle Sprain Therapy

Daily Voice Englewood—September 7, 2017

Daily Voice Englewood featured Scott Siverling PT, DPT, OCS, manager at HSS Rehabilitation in Paramus, discussing how a sprained ankle could cause additional injuries.

"Many of us have 'rolled' our ankles, causing what’s effectively known as an acute ankle sprain. Often, these injuries are self-limiting and heal rather easily with time. However, occasionally some ankle sprains can be very painful, causing us to limp or avoid certain motions," said Silverling.

Due to a lack of ankle mobility, an ankle sprain could cause the lower body to overcompensate for the injured joint.

Silverling said "a recent study found that those who suffered an ankle sprain and did not receive physical therapy or rehabilitation services were more likely to exhibit altered walking patterns."

He added that if the ankle sprain does not heal properly, subsequent injury can occur.

According to the article, physical therapy treatment for a sprained ankle is quick, effective and prevents future injuries from occurring.
