Ankle sprains are the most prevalent lower limb musculoskeletal injury incurred by athletes (across all levels of competition) who participate in field- and court-sports. However, all too often colloquial terms such as a “rolled” or “twisted” ankle are used to describe an acute ankle sprain injury. In reality, acute ankle sprains are rarely ever a “simple” injury. Ankle sprains have the highest re-injury rate of all lower limb musculoskeletal injuries! Considering the high prevalence, efforts to prevent ankle sprain injuries and their associated impairments should be a priority amongst the sports physiotherapy community.
This 1-day course will provide a comprehensive evidence-informed overview of clinical assessment, rehabilitation and prevention of ankle sprain injuries, with a particular focus on the sensorimotor impairments associated with chronic ankle instability. The course will be an essential update and guide for clinicians working with field- and court-sport athletes. As an update, this symposium will present the most up-to-date peer-reviewed strategies. As a guide, it will outline how physiotherapists can effectively implement these strategies as part of their daily practice.
