Ankle Injury

Ankle Pain Relief With Bowen Therapy

While most people assume ankle injuries happen playing sport, age, twisting the wrong way or falling in holes – the truth is even sitting at a computer with bad ergonomics can be just as bad for the connective tissue of the ankle.

What is an ankle injury?

So let us start with Sports Medicine Australia’s definition, which states that sprains to the ankle are one of the most common sporting injuries. A sprain is defined as a tearing of the ligaments that connect bone to bone and help stabilise the joint. Following an ankle sprain, the ankle joint may become unstable and take a long time to recover.

What is the Ankle?

The ankle joint is a hinge joint formed between the bones of the lower and the top most bone of the foot. With the ligaments torn or weakened the result is pain, swelling and lack of stability.

There are many forms of Ankle Injury

1. Rolled Ankle

2. Tear or stain of muscle and tendon with associated bruising.

3. Periostial Tear of tendon or ligament off the bone

4. Dislocation of the ankle

5. Fracture of an ankle bone

6. Bone bruising of the ankle

7. Combinations of the above

8. Chronic pain of the ankle. Over use injury, stress fracture, osteophytes, tendinitis, tendinosis, tendinopathy, etc

9. Subluxation of the Subtalar Joint
