Treating Ankle Sprains and Strains (2017)


Yes!  Ankle sprains and strains are a common everyday occurrence and even the mildest of sprains can temporarily affect your training and mobility.  A sprain/strain can lead to chronic issues and loss of performance later in life when not properly cared for and managed.  Severe cases can lead to lengthy rehabilitation and even surgery.

Icing alone won’t heal the injury over time, and then the doctor bills start to add up as you seek help.  With the cost of healthcare on the rise and no sign of that trend improving, it’s even more necessary to learn how to safely self-treat and manage common musculoskeletal and mobility related conditions.

How about a better way to safely self-treat and manage an ankle sprain/strain?

When you can confidently self-treat, you can limit pain levels, return to activity faster, prevent reoccurrences, and save money!  In Treating Ankle Sprains and Strains, you will learn how to confidently self-treat in order to resume your training and normal activities without the risk of additional damage, injury or re-injury.

  1. Hi Ben! I originally thought I sprained my ankle during a long run. However, after a week of my ankle not getting better, I went to a PT. They said I had Posterial Tibial Tendionitis. I am approaching 2 weeks off from running and been wearing a boot for a couple hours a day. I want to start back running, but a little nervous. Any recomendations on an ankle brace to wear while running? Also, I did get Powerstep inserts.

    • Thanks for the question! I don’t have a great brace recommendation for you. I think the orthotics were a really good idea. You could try compression socks as well. Here is a link to the one I use:

      More importantly, your PT should determine the root cause of why you developed posterior tibial tendonitis. Often associated hip weakness can lead to this or issues with your big toe and forefoot mobility.

      Here is a link to one of my popular posts that goes more in-depth:

      Let me know what your PT comes up with! Good luck!
