Do you suffer from ongoing ankle sprains? Then you may be at risk of developing Chronic Ankle Instability! So what exactly is Chronic Ankle Instability?
Chronic Ankle Instability is a condition that occurs due to repeated ankle sprains as a result of the outside of the ankle giving way. Over the years, multiple ankle sprains are likely to cause the ligaments to become stretched and in severe cases, torn. Quite often this can happen when undertaking activities such as walking and standing. Poor rehabilitation of a simple ankle sprain or roll is one of the biggest causes. This is why it is so important to make sure that you undertake proper rehabilitation to strengthen the muscles around the ankles.
More often than not, if you suffer from chronic ankle instability you may experience the following:
– Repeated turning/ twisting of the ankle on uneven surfaces or playing sport
– Pain and tenderness around the outside of the ankles
– An unstable feeling
